“Passing through idyllic patchworks of traditional farming, weaving in and out of huge limestone karst land formations with stunning waterways of Puzhehei, over bridges, and past swan rookeries. Yunnan Puzhehei really is a marathon like no other, a mix of mind boggling environment, picture perfect farmlands, and plenty of traditional culture, it is perfect for any kind of runner – road or trail – looking for a memorable running holiday.” says Chris Ord, who visited the race region recently for Australian-based, Trail Run Mag (www.trailrunmag.com).
