In the vicinity of Beijing, near the city of Tianjin, the Great Wall Marathon took place, - translated from English, "Marathon along the Great Wall of China."


In fact, there are as many as three marathons here - a classic run of more than 42 kilometers, a half-marathon - of 21 km, and, finally, an amateur - of 8 and a half kilometers. However, whichever one you choose, you will still have to overcome one of the most difficult challenges for any runner and even a spectator - going up and down 5,164 steps. There is simply no other way to the top of the longest of all man-made creations of mankind. Moreover, the climb is so steep that many overcome the force of gravity almost on all fours.

Remarkably, attendees pay the same fee as the competitors. This approach is due to the desire of the authorities to restrict people's access to the wall so that the historical monument is not damaged. Athletes from 67 countries took part in the race this year. Australian Douglas Wilson was the first to cross the finish line. He ran the distance in 3 hours 25 minutes and 25 seconds.
