Q1：If I take the night flight to Xilinhot, how can I get to the hotel I live in Xiwuqi? Can I get my number bibs and other event stuff as I arrive？
A：We do not suggest you take the night flight in case of delay and which also give you less time to have rest for the race the next day. We offer airport shuttle service, which is free to TP-buyers, and non-TP-buyers could buy it in the optional service when registering online. Airport shuttle bus will first drop people off at Xiwuqi Hotel, then Electricity Hotel. The Race Office is located at the Electricity Hotel, and where you can pick up your race goodies the next day. WARNING: Runners who take the Friday night flight with China Eastern MUST warn us in advance of their late arrival so we can arrange handing over the race goodie bag upon arrival in Xiwuqi. The Race Office will not be open before the start of the Grassland Marathon in the early hours of Saturday!
