After a break of 2 years, the 11th edition of the Genghis Khan Festival will take place in traditional Xiwuqi, Inner Mongolia, from 9 to 11 August 2019, which means one month later than usual. The event design remains as before: three days of mountainbiking and a Grassland Marathon and Half Marathon run on Saturday morning. Those who compete in both the MTB long distance and the Marathon compete for the much-coveted crown of King and Queen of the Grasslands!
Nordic Ways is very pleased that the beloved summer event will finally return on China’s sports calendar, and will spare no effort to ensure the high quality the event was known for from 2007 to 2016 is retained. For those who have joined GKF before, we are not envisaging major changes in logistics other than the new event weekend in August. In terms of the sports competitions, our race director and his technical team will be on site as of next week to work on the course design. Please use the previous years’ course maps and details as guideline for now.
In the next days, we will be circulating all necessary infos about the relaunch via our Nordic ways WeChat channel, Facebook and a new event website to be released soon. Registration will open in early to mid June.
And oh ya…. the Grassland Crazy Night also stays on the programme for Saturday !
