Jinshanling Great Wall Marathon 2015: Climb Where Others Have Gone In the Days Of Old

Built during the Warring States period over 2,000 years ago, the Great Wall of China is a symbol of strength and endurance, and remains one of the seven ancient wonders of the world. As it so happens, the marathon, inspired by peace and freedom in Ancient Greece, was founded in the same time period. Who would have thought that two millennia later, these two symbolic icons of ancient civilisation—the Great Wall and the Olympic Marathon—will harmoniously come together in a festive international sports and culture exchange.
