The Great Hakka is an annual cross-country marathon race taking place in scenic Nanjing County close to the city of Xiamen, China. It is organized by some of the original creators of the Great Wall Marathon, and it features a similar event format with a marathon race, half-marathon and a fun-run. The Great Hakka builds on organizing experience and feedback received from thousands of runners over the course of 15 years. The area features unspoilt landscapes and century-old traditions, as well as the iconic Hakka Houses, which are recognised as World Heritage by UNESCO.
The Great Hakka Marathon features three distances: a full marathon – 42.195km/26.2mi, a half marathon – 21.1km/13.1mi and a 8 km/4.97 mi Fun Run.
