When: May 2020

Click here to pre register for the Great Wall Marathon 2020!

Marathon Tours has a huge amount of experience in both travelling to and sending runners and walkers to the Great Wall Marathon and we send a large number of runners each year. 

We like to provide you with options for the Great Wall Marathon.  If you choose to "Travel with us" this package offers a comfortable stay in rural Jixian near the Marathon event, you also get to enjoy the hustle and bustle of Beijing for a chance to take tours of this fascinating city and shop until you drop!  

The 'Travel on your own' package allows you to choose the itinerary that meets your needs and budget, and we can tailor this with the right flights and additional activities to ensure you make the most of your time in Jixian, Beijing and beyond. While this is a separate to our "Travel with us" tour, you will still join other Great Wall Marathon participants from New Zealand and abroad, and also benefit from the support of a local English-speaking guide throughout the tour. Talk to the team about the best option for you.

Marathon cut off time: 8 hours 

You must be an New Zealand citizen or New Zealand resident to purchase this package.

The achievement of a challenging marathon on and around incredible scenery and the fun times and friendships made with an awesome group of kiwis made this a truly memorable experience that I will remember for a lifetime.
