We have put together two great events for those who want to experience two fascinating cultures on a superb 14-night Grand Tour.

Run the Great Wall Marathon or Half Marathon then fly on to the mystical Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan for the Thunder Dragon Marathon and Half Marathon- truly the trip of a lifetime.

The Grand Tour highlights our 6-night Great Wall package, with 4 nights in Beijing and 2 nights in the provincial town of Jinxian located close to the section of the Wall hosting the race.

Stay and enjoy the Celebration Banquet the day after the Great Wall Marathon then on the Monday fly to Bangkok, the gateway city for flights to Paro in Bhutan. 

The 6-night package in Bhutan includes visits to the Tigers Nest Monestary, the capital Thimphu and the old capital of Bhutan Punakha, with cultural visits and day treks built in.

The Thunder Dragon Marathon runs along the beautiful Paro River and one of its tributaries and takes in Paro Dzong, with the half marathon also running across the famous ornate bridge which leads to the impressive main gate of the Dzong, where the half and full marathons join together again for the last 10km. The amount of climbing is moderate at 1,000m of altitude gain and loss in the marathon and 450m in the half with the two longest climbs of approx 4km (one in the first half and one in the second half) on road and farm tracks - the lowest point is at 2,200mts and the highest 2,560mts.

You will need to purchase flights from your home to Beijing, then on to Bangkok to join the Thunder Dragon part of the tour. The return flights Bangkok/Paro (Bhutan)/Bangkok are included in the package. You will also require an overnight at least on the inbound in Bangkok as flights to Bhutan leave early in the morning. Flights return to Bangkok at the end of the tour in the late afternoon so you should be okay for a late evening onward flight or stay overnight in Bangkok again.
