The Project

235 days, 8 countries, 12.000km – those are the numbers, and they represent Kai Markus and his ambitious plan to run from Hamburg to Shanghai. Starting in March 12th, the race is on, and Kai enters his personal adventure. The project will be promoted on every relevant social media channel via @runmysilkroad, and it is not just about top athletic performances. It also supports the task to connect the German and Chinese culture in a special way. Above the essential will and discipline, you need the right equipment and support to realize this enthusiastic endeavor. That is why 361º, the brand with roots in China will support Kai Markus by providing him with sports gear and equipment he needs for the preparation and realization of the project.


This quest is not just about top athletic performances, it also presents an opportunity to connect the German and Chinese culture in a very special way. With his run, Kai Markus wants to build the cultural bridge between Germany and China and tackle prejudices and 361º together with China Tours are delighted to be able to support this mission.
