In the third year after entering the Chinese market, the Chinese version of the world's most well-known running magazine <Runners World> has become a media partner of the Genghis Khan Grassland Marathon. Nordic Ways is very pleased that the famous magazine recognises the relevance of our event for the domestic running community.
Chain Reaction Cycles.com, the world's biggest online retail store for bikers, is sponsoring the 8th Genghis Khan Festival for the second consecutive year and is keen to make its presence noticed once again. CRC is inviting everyone to visit their website and take part in the lucky draw to win one of several free race entries to this year's race!
Running the Grassland Marathon or riding the 3-day MTB Adventure requires a lot of energy and Enervit-Science in Nutrition will once again ensure you will have it on race day. The famous Italian brand is available in Asia since last year and we are happy that Enervit has now extended the partnership with the Genghis Khan Festival for 2014.
Our long-term promotional partner HeyRunning has just announced its 2014 Spring camp for Beijing residents and it commences on Sunday, 9 March. The 6-week long camp is an excellent opportunity for Grassland Marathon participants to get ready for the challenge on 5 July. And by the way, HeyRunning founder Linus Holmsater won our race last year!
For the third consecutive year Operation Smile is our charity partner of choice and we are both very happy and motivated to promote its cause and bring a smile on the faces of children in need. By way of a donation or by raising funds every participant is highly welcome and encouraged to become a member of Team Operation Smile for the Genghis Khan Festival!

Austria is a small mountainous country south of Germany that it better known for its skiers than for its bikers and runners, but last year the women's Grassland Half Marathon was won by an Austrian lady. Maria Jammernegg, together with her husband Franz and son Georg, has been one of the most cheerful participants of the Genghis Khan Festival in the last two years and her victory made a lot of people very happy. Let's get to know Maria a bit better via our traditional Q&A.
