Mountain Marathon was held in Zhangjiajie UGGp

On Nov. 18, the 2018 Mountain Marathon of Zhangjiajie City was held in Zhangjiajie UGGp. The whole event included full-length, half-length and fascinating matches, all of which passed through the central scenic areas of Zhangjiajie UGGp, including Golden Whip Creek, Ten-miles Painting Galary, Baizhang Gorge, Water-surrended Four Gates, and more. The main purpose for designing such a route is to allow the athletes enjoy the distinctive landscapes of sandstone peak forests and the colorful country scenearies. This is the second successive marathon after the one successfully held in Zhangjiajie City in 2017 and attracted more than 2000 participants from more than 10 countries, mainly from China, France, Czech, Japan and New Zealand.

In recent years, the administrative committee of Zhangjiajie UGGp has tried to take the advantage of the natural beautiful landscapes of sandstone forests, first-class natural ecological resources and high-level quality of atomsphere, conducting successively many sporting activities in the geopark within the theme of "Sports+Tourism". This has significantly enhanced the international reputation of Zhangjiajie UGGp and the capacity for facing major challenges in the geopark management. Several sporting events have been planned by the administrative committee of Zhangjiajie UGGp in the near future, aiming at developing the territory of the geopark as an international destination on "Sports+Tourism" by way of successively organizing sporting events in Zhangjiajie UGGp.
