The 2017 Genghis Khan MTB Adventure & Grassland Marathon is organised by the Xiwuqi Municipal Government in cooperation with Nordic Ways Beijing.
The Genghis Khan Festival, first organised in 2007, consists of two different sports disciplines: mountainbiking and cross country running. Mountainbikers are being offered a 3-day stage competition with a total length of approximately 200km, while runners get the chance of running a full marathon or half marathon distance offroad. It is also possible to do both, and therefore compete for the crown of the King or Queen of the Grasslands. All competitions take place in the grasslands surrounding Xiwuqi town and cater for all levels of athletes as shorter distances are also available.
This is a unique event in China.
