In Ready To Conquer

Delta Sky Magazine | October 2017

We’re featured in Delta Airline’s Sky Magazine Run, Bike, and Swim Marathon Bucket List article, in the October 2017 edition, page 79. Registration is open!

The article goes on to say: “Built more than 2000 years ago to protect China from invaders the Great Wall offers runners courses that are both ancient and challenging. The Conquer the Wall Marathon offers a course that is mostly on the wall itself. Runners from all over the world traverse more than 20,000 stone steps on the fortress wall, making their way around guard towers and looking out at the stunning panoramic views of ancient Chinese villages. The course includes no asphalt or roads, other than a short stretch that takes runners to the wall itself. Likened to stop-and-start interval training, where some steps have become uneven and crumbling and require runners to slow down, the race is still runnable throughout, requiring no special equipment.”

Thank you, Delta Sky Magazine.
