The challenge

  • Run, trek and bike on and in the shadows of the Great Wall of China
  • Complete two half marathons, 155kms of cycling and two days trekking on the Great Wall
  • Witness the grandeur of the Great Wall twisting and winding its way through the mountains
  • Visit Beijing, the Forbidden City and mausoleums of Ming Dynasty emperors (1368-1644)
  • Complete the challenge with a run in the Olympic Forest Park

The Great Wall of China was originally constructed to keep out nomadic tribes who raided China's Northern frontier.Your trekking challenge starts in Jinshanling with a vigorous upward climb requiring you to mount thousands of steps that loop along the mountains either side of the Gubeikou Gateway.Each day you will trek approximately 12kms along the stony path, twisting and winding its way along the mountains, interspersed with crumbling watchtowers.It is demanding but also very rewarding, particularly on a clear day when you can look at the vast and beautiful mountain ranges. Your imagination will take you back several centuries to when the wall was the frontline defence of Imperial China.
