Whether you’re a couch potato looking for a reason to finally fulfil your New Years’ fitness resolution, or a seasoned runner on the lookout for new challenges, Beijing's home to a bunch of brilliant marathons – the majority of which are set on the fantastically scenic (and not-at-all flat) Great Wall.
We recommend that you check out each race's official website prior to registering to get all the details, mainly because registration regulations and course difficulty differ from race to race. Until then, check out our handy round-up to this season's marathons and hit the wall running.
