What is the Great Hakka Marathon course like?

Simply put: Very scenic and diverse. Most of the race track is within a narrow elevation range, but there are some sections involving uphill running. This is especially true for the full-marathon distance, which includes a challenging uphill section towards the end of the race. The tracks cover many different surfaces, such as country tar roads, pebble/cobble roads, dirt roads. Overall, the Great Hakka provides for a wonderful scenic running experience, but the full-marathon track is challenging and should not be underestimated.
