WTB's revolutionary Frequency rims

As one of the Genghis Khan MTB Adventure's main sponsors, Wilderness Trail Bikes (WTB) is providing several of its newest Frequency rims as prize for top performers during the 3-day event. As WTB's promotional PDF says: Frequency rims are a simple solution to get the best tubeless wheel build available at an affordable price. With CID (Compatible Integrated Design) Design Principles, any qualified wheel builder can build up Frequency rims with standard wheel building tools and parts to make a wheel that’s easy to service in the field.


Via TimeOut Beijing to the Grassland Marathon

Readers of the renowned brand magazine TimeOut Beijing now have the chance to win an all-expenses paid trip to this year's Grassland Marathon. All you need to do to have a chance to win is answer the question: "which famous English poet penned the line: 'In Xanadu did Kubla Khan / A stately pleasure-dome decree'?"


Important message: Mongolian Yurts booked out!

It is still two and a half months until the event, but after the Xiwuqi Hotel now also the Mongolian yurts on the Saturday night have been fully booked. We now have more than 300 people already scheduled to take part in the GKF. Both Nordic Ways and the Xiwuqi local government are of course delighted with the very positive response to the Genghis Khan Festival and we are committed to deliver a high-quality event.


Second HeyRunning Camp to begin on May 6!

For Beijing residents there is no better way to prepare for the Genghis Khan Grassland Marathon as with the HeyRunning Camp organised by our event partner Heyrobics. The first Spring camp started in the beginning of March and has attracted so much interest that a second camp will be launched on the 6th of May!


The Kings of the Grasslands

Checking the registration database to date, we have spotted a few athletes who will do a combination of running and mountainbiking at the upcoming Genghis Khan Festival. At least three Chinese participants so far have even registered for the full marathon and the three days MTB long-distance event! Very remarkable and exemplary for the Chinese endurance athlete community. Where do these supermen come from? What is their sports background? Are they really able to fulfill this extraordinary challenge? Nordic Ways contacted three of them and found some answers.


Operation Smile goes Grassland Marathon!

Nordic Ways is very happy to announce the new cooperation with Operation Smile, a non-profit medical service organisation based in Virginia, USA, and with 4 offices in China. Operation Smile provides free surgeries to repair cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities for children around the globe.


Travel made easier with Run China and Venture

The Mongolian plains and its grasslands are remote territory, and for most non-China residents it is a mystery on how to get there. Good news: travel to the Genghis Khan Festival now becomes easier thanks to experienced travel operators Run China and Venture!
