US Athlete Completes 1st Solo Run along China's Great Wall


U.S. endurance athlete Jason Lester has become the first solo athlete to run the entire length of the Great Wall of China, arriving at the Shanhai Pass, eastern end of the landmark on Wednesday.

The runner started his mission at the western end Jiayu Pass in northwest China's Gansu Province in August and ran more than 4,000 km along the wall, one of the most famous and recognizable structures in the world, to raise awareness of the fight against childhood malnutrition.

Lester finished the run in 83 days, an average daily trek of more than a marathon a day over rugged terrain.

"It's been a long journey, 83 days, day after day, running a marathon a day, definitely puts a toll on your body," he said.
