One week to go for early birds

We wish everyone a MERRY CHRISTMAS and a wonderful rush into the new year, on behalf of the entire organisation committee of the Genghis Khan Festival. New year means we are halfway in the cycle before the next edition: time to join the many hundreds who have signed up already and enjoy early bird discounts!


Focus on Athlete: Luo Jingyu

He is 25 years old, and also the second place of our King of the Grassland competition this year, and then won the second place in his age group in Langkawi Ironman competition at the end of September - What is surprising is that he just started triathlon training just one year ago. The following is our interview of the fantastic boy, Mr. Luo Jingyu.


Online registration for 2015 open

Starting today, Monday, 27 July, people from all over the world can register online for the 2015 Genghis Khan Festival. The 9th edition in Inner Mongolia's Xiwuqi will once again feature the Grassland Marathon for runners and the Genghis Khan MTB Adventure for mountainbikers, with the King of the Grasslands competition for those who do both on top.


Wang Lidong remains King of the Grasslands

The final podium ceremony of the Genghis Khan Festival on Sunday afternoon is since last year reserved for the strong men who competed in both the Grassland Marathon run and the 3-day MTB Adventure. And for the second consecutive time it was Wang Lidong who earned the title of King of the Grasslands.


Myagmarsuren dots the i with second stage win

Basaankhuu Myagmarsuren is the deserved winner of the 2014 Genghis Khan MTB Adventure after outsprinting compatriot Bilguunjargal Erdenebat to take his second stage win. The 23-year-old Mongolian seemed totally in control of proceedings during the 96km long final stage, and despite a crash early on did not succumb to the pressure.



Hu Hao takes revenge, Myagmarsuren keeps yellow

In another stage under hot temperatures, Hu Hao proved his class to the entire MTB field as he forgot the unfortunate puncture of yesterday and outpaced his three Mongolian companions to win solo at Yurt City after 43km. Myagmarsuren finished fourth and keeps the lead in the overall ranking, but several challengers remain in striking distance.


Holmsater beats Yun Yanqiao in battle of champions

Linus Holmsater confirmed his status of race favourite and took his second consecutive Grassland Marathon victory in a splendid time of 2:43:47. The Swedish Heyrobics star ran faster downhill than 2012 champion Yun Yanqiao, while Russia's Olya Kurzh won the women's marathon.
