November 26, 2016 saw the third edition of the Great Hakka Marathon, held in scenic Nanjing County about 2.5 hours by car from the city of Xiamen, Fujianc Province, China.
More than 500 participants from 33 countries and regions, as well as hundreds of volunteers and thousands of locals along the race tracks took part in this boutique cross-country marathon event, held amidst the iconic Hakka Houses.
Most important: Despite the difficult weather conditions, all runners finished the demanding course safely and – judging from the feedback received during and after the race – they all had a good time and an gread race in Nanjing County.
On behalf of the whole organizing team and the locals, we would like to sincerely thank all participants for making the trip to Nanjing County, and for joining us in this celebration of sports, nature, culture and travel.
Your support and enthusiasm made this a very special event, and we are already looking forward to the fourth edition in 2017.
