ECCO at The Great Wall Marathon 2010

The Great Wall Marathon took place on Saturday 15 May and featured 1,723 runners from 50 countries.

Now in its 11th year, the Great Wall Marathon is the only marathon event in China that takes place on the Wall.

This marathon is regarded the premium marathon in China, which is why the Danish shoe brand, ECCO, sponsored the event held in conjunction with its BIOM shoe launch in China. General Manager, George Kahwati made a presentation to the winners.

ECCO-sponsored runner, Mr. Tong Qiang, wearing ECCO BIOM A, won the full marathon title with an impressive result of three hours and 24 minutes. “It’s a magical feeling running with ECCO BIOM shoes. The BIOM A fits and protects my feet perfectly, with great control over the terrains and I barely felt the existence of the shoes when I was running. I think everyone should try out ECCO’s Natural Motion running concept and start training with BIOM for the next Great Wall Marathon in 2011!”, remarked Tong Qiang after the race.
