Xian Half Marathon with Wendy Wu Tours

Award winning China operator, Wendy Wu Tours, has unveiled a unique way of exploring the ancient city of Xian with a special six-day half marathon package.

Taking place in November 2016, the half marathon allows competitors the opportunity to run along the magnificent city walls of Xian, built during the Ming Dynasty (1368–1644). The walls cover 8.5 miles and stand at 12 metres high.

Held since 1993, the race has attracted runners from around the world and over 4,000 professional athletes have competed. Falling annually on the first Sunday of November, the marathon is now the biggest sporting event in Xian.

Wendy Wu Tours ‘Xian Half Marathon’ package (2 – 8 November 2016) is available from £1,299pp and includes competing in the half marathon, a trip to see the Terracotta Warriors and watching a traditional Tang Dynasty dancing show.
