How to join the Great Hakka

For both runners and spectators we offer standard packages, which you will find introduced in detail below – including optional travel extensions. If you need special individual arrangements, please get in touch with us. Kindly note that the registration deadline for any arrangement is October 24, 2018. See you in Nanjing County!

Lots of choice

Upon popular request and to give you more choices, we have extended the sign-up options. To both runners and spectators, we now offer different packages that vary in length of stay and range of services provided.

As before, when accomodation is included, you can choose between the best hotel in the area (3-star level) or one of the simpler local hostels in Taxia village – depending on the level of convenience you desire.

When choosing your individual package, please keep in mind that Nanjing County is a rural area with considerable distances and limited infrastructure, e.g. in accomodation, local transportation or availablity of English-speaking services.

If you choose accomodation at one of the local hostels in Taxia, please note that your stay may require walks of 7-15 minutes depending on the location of your hostel within the village.

If you wish to book the ‘Race Only’ option, we strongly recommend being able to speak some basic Chinese or bring a Chinese-speaking friend, since all logistics beyond the race itself will need to be arranged by yourself.

Whatever your choices, be assured that the romantic atmosphere, the clean air and the beautiful scenery of Nanjing County more than make up for what it might lack in convenience.

As in the past races, starting slots for the 2018 edition will be limited in order to guarantee a great running experience. Sign-up deadline is September 25, 2018.
