金山岭长城 History of Jinshanling Great Wall

The Great Wall, one of the greatest wonders of the world, was listed as a World Heritage by UNESCO in 1987. With a history of more than 2000 years, some of the sections are now in ruins or have disappeared. However, it is still one of the most appealing attractions all around the world owing to its architectural grandeur and historical significance. The Jinshanling section of the Great Wall were built during the Ming Dynasty and host our marathon course. While a small portion of the Wall on the course has been restored. Much of the wall on the race course is still in its original state and in ruins. You’ll encounter loose stones, gravel, missing steps, and crumbling walls. Trees and grass in some areas on the Wall. Runners must use extreme caution as there are sections of the race course where you must exit the Wall and run on the trail along side the Wall to avoid extreme hazards.

The JinShanLing Great Wall Marathon boasts its breath-taking panoramic views and its challenging course. It is organized by Do-Win Shoes Company and the local government, offering a full selection of races, including a full marathon (42.2k), half marathon (21.1k), and 10k distances.

The JinShanLing section of the Great Wall is 10.5km long, with 5 passes, 67 towers and 2 beacon towers. The entire race course has over 20,000 countable steps throughout the varied terrain.

The registration fee includes timing chip, round-trip bus transport between Beijing and JinShanLing, the JinShanLing admission fee, health insurance, bib, event t-shirt, bath towel, medal, beverages, certificate for completion and 3 or 5 nights hotel accomodation with toure packages.

Timing chip, bath towel, and certificate for completion will not be available for 10KM entrants.
