After careful consideration of all factors involved, the Organising Committee of the 2012 Genghis Khan Festival has decided to change the location of the Race Office to the second “event hotel”, i.e. the Electricity Hotel. All participants in this year’s GKF will thus be kindly requested to collect their number bibs and participant goodie bags in the lobby of this hotel. The Race Office will also feature all competition information, start and result lists.
A detailed street map of Xiwuqi with key venues will be published on the GKF website in the next few days and will also be provided to all participants. Our staff and a team of qualified volunteers will further ensure that everybody who is not accomodated at the Electricity Hotel will find the way. Further primary participant info will be communicated in the weeks leading up to the event.
Meanwhile, as we keep getting questions these days, please note that as previously announced we have an agreement with a third quality hotel to serve as “event hotel” during the Genghis Khan Festival. As such, travel packages can still be booked via our online registration form. Friday morning and Sunday morning flights with Air China are reportedly sold out now, so you may need to arrange your TP accordingly. We still have a few bus seats from Beijing on June 28, leaving in the morning and arriving in Xiwuqi in the late afternoon.
We have now hit the +400 participant mark, which is the biggest turnout so far in the history of the Genghis Khan Festival. We are delighted to see that our event, first organised in this rather remote area of Northern China in 2007, is gradually becoming a classic on the Chinese amateur sports scene. We look forward as much as you!
