The 9th Beijing International Mountain Walking Festival sponsored by Greenland Group & China OCT kicked off at Zhaitang Township of Mentougou District of Beijing on September 8, 2018, attracting 12,000 walking lovers from nearly 20 countries and regions.

This year, the festival offered three walking routes, including 10 km red tourism walking route and 20 km reservoir charm walking route on September 8 as well as 12 km Juren’s (a successful candidate in the imperial examinations at the provincial level) road walking route on September 9. The three routes combining natural sceneries and cultural landscapes provided participants with a rare cultural experience of sports and leisure.

The festival supported timing on the WeChat account on the phone. Participants could follow the official WeChat account of “Beijing International Mountain Walking Festival”, by which they were informed of their walking time in real time and received an electronic certificate with their name, entry number and result after completing walking.

In addition, the festival highlighted a “walking passport” for participants. After walking, participants could put an exclusive stamp designed by the festival on the passport to keep a good memory. Past participants could also stamp their certificates, souvenir badges, clothes and number bibs of previous festivals.
