The Great Wall Run Festival is hybrid music and sporting event that combines live music with China's flourishing fitness industry. Similar to the musical fun runs that have become popular throughout North America, this event blends the spirit of a music festival with a challenging 5K race.

The Great Wall Run Festival is an event that is held at the Simatai Great Wall and Beijing W Town. The event begins with participants running along one of the most beautiful and most challenging sections of the Great Wall. Following the run, there will be a series of live shows by popular Chinese and Western DJs such as Code Black, Deorro and Huangweiwei. There will also be visual exhibitions for a fully immersive festival experience.

The Great Wall Run Festival not only demonstrates the growing popularity of electronic music in China, but also the ongoing demand for fitness-focused events such as fun runs.
