Civilisations - Ancient China




The Event

This is the longest event in the Run The Civilisations series with an accumulation of 311km (3,112 years) needed to earn this lovely tablet. You can run or walk to add to your distance and you can complete the event entirely at your own pace.

The Ancient Chinese civilisation began (officially) with the formation of the Xia Dynasty in 2205BC and went all of the way through to 907AD when the Tang rule ended. This brought the era of the five dynasties in China which leads into what it is today.

The Reward

Our fantastic Civilisations series tablets are double sided with exquisite designs and a timeline of the civilisation. For Ancient China, we have used the red and gold colours with dragons roaring around the perimeter. The two 3D designs on the front show the Terracotta Army and the Great Wall. The timeline of the Ancient Chinese civilisation shows us key events such as the construction of the Great Wall and the invention of paper and books!
