The Agoge 003 Beijing, China page asks for participants to stay and/or meet at the Regent Beijing hotel and then from there, they will be bused out to the event location, the Great Wall of China. Though it does not say which location or section. This would certainly be a awesome event for those of us in the USA to travel to such a beautiful country, historical landmarks & amazing scenery. I'm sure locals in & around Beijing will sign up, as registration is open to anyone in any country.
Just though I'd share this. As far as I know, this could be the first type of endurance type event in & around Beijing. The Agoge series component is totally different from a typical Spartan Race (that has mud pits, climbing walls & other obstacles, etc.), Agoge is specifically a challenging team building exercise with tasks in which the participants come with a ruck (i.e. backpack) filled with the required gear from the specified gear list.
I'm sure this is something new and glad Spartan has chosen such a wonderful place to honor such an event - The Great Wall of China.
