Registration for 2013 NOW open!

The online registration for the 7th Genghis Khan MTB Adventure and Grassland Marathon to be held in Inner Mongolia’s Xiwuqi between 5 and 7 July 2013 has now been initiated. Via the form, produced in cooperation with our partner, everybody can sign up for the competitions and/or the various travel options. The Early Bird registration phase lasts until 1 April 2013.

The 2013 event once again features a 3-day mountainbike (MTB) stage race, as well as a Grassland Marathon, half marathon and 10km run. The new courses introduced in 2012 were highly praised and will remain virtually unmodified for next year. The Grassland Marathon route will see a few changes, though, inside the grasslands as well as in the final kilometres, which will be confirmed and communicated at a later stage. Also, it is envisaged to ride the third stage of the MTB Adventure in the opposite direction. In total, the MTB Adventure will again have a total length of 200km!

All information on the running and mountainbiking competitions can be found in the updated relevant sections of this website.

As always, Nordic Ways is committed to make your travel and stay in Xiwuqi as pleasant and efficient as possible. Our very competitive and widely appreciated travel packages are outlined in the ‘Travel‘ section of this website and are highly recommended. Book early, however! Our packages were sold out weeks before the start of the event in 2012, and all signs point to an even earlier sell-out this time. Remember Xiwuqi is still a small town in a beautiful but remote area of northern China. Group registration (one team = 5 people) is quick and easy online, big groups can contact us via email first at

Our website has been fully updated for 2013, but much more will be added in the months to come. The easiest way to stay tuned is by subscribing to our RSS feed in the top right corner of this page. And why don’t you connect with other participants via or facebook, too?

The Organising Committee is looking forward to seeing you all in the grasslands next July for another unforgettable Genghis Khan Festival.

Nordic Ways also wishes to thank our event sponsors, charity partner and other friends for their ongoing support.  Businesses and/or individuals keen on partnering this unique event are most welcome to contact us via +86 131 2009 2913 (English spoken) or
