Great Wall Charity Marathon
Great Wall Cares is excited to announce the
development of our own Great Wall Charity Marathon! This new
marathon will serve as the main event to our calendar of
charitable activities. Spanning over 6,000km and long admired as
one of the most amazing achievements in the history of mankind,
the Great Wall will now serve as one of the most unique
locations for a marathon. The
Great Wall Charity Marathon is a tough, beautiful and definitely
extraordinary experience. The rugged steps of the Great Wall
will put your body to the test, and the breath-taking
surroundings will compete with your tired muscles for attention.
The Great Wall Charity Marathon is the ideal way to combine
exploring one of the world’s most astonishing sights as well as
giving back to the people and communities of rural China.
No runner should enter The Great Wall Charity
Marathon believing that this is an easy course. However, no one
should think that this is an impossible challenge reserved
exclusively for the running elite. Don't be scared; just make sure
to come prepared. For those traveling to China with Great Wall
Adventure Club or just by themselves, a spot in the Great Wall
Charity Marathon can easily be bundled with a China package tour.
That way you can combine one of the most challenging marathons of a
lifetime with an unforgettable holiday in the “middle Kingdom”.
The Great Wall Charity Marathon was established
in order to promote five key principles:
Environment: Promote contact with nature and raise awareness on
the matter of global sustainability
Encourage participation in sports
quality of life
Citizenship: Promote global community spirit and social
Tenacity: Motivate the human being to overcome a challenge
Beauty: Awaken society to the importance of preserving places
with outstanding universal values and share it without harming
While the Great Wall Charity Marathon is just
in the planning stage, more news regarding this amazing opportunity
will be coming shortly. Please regularly check this page for updates
