The Great Wall Marathon has been ranked as one of the top marathons worth travelling for. One of the marathons is the Jinshanling Great Wall Marathon which involves the 42km full marathon, 21km half marathon, and 10km and 5km distances.

Considered one of the most pristine and most beautiful sections of the Great Wall in the Beijing area, your run will afford stunning views of the surrounding countryside. Originally built to guard strategic passes on the plains on which Beijing is located, the magnificent vistas and solitary setting here evoke the grandeur and dazzling achievement of 5,000 years of Chinese civilization.
