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
Health: Encourage participation in sports quality of life
Citizenship: Promote global community spirit and social mobilization
Tenacity: Motivate the human being to overcome a challenge
Natural 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.
