Annyeonghaseyo? Gangwon-do Here We Come!
We are all packed and ready to go!
There are many exciting marathons in Korea for example, the Seoul International Marathon, Gyeongju Cherry Blossom Marathon, Jeju Mandarin Marathon, Jeju MBC International Peace Marathon and last but not least the Gangwon Province and Chuncheon Chosunilbo Marathon which will be happening this weekend. We are very excited since this will be our first trip to South Korea!
First held in 1946, it is the second oldest marathon in the country after the Seoul International Marathon. Sponsored by The Chosun Ilbo, a major daily newspaper in South Korea, the race is one of two in the country which holds IAAF Silver Label status, along with Gyeongju International Marathon.
Apart from running the 10K race, we will be doing a lot of sight-seeing including a bicycling trip around the beautiful province of Gangwon.
Here's our tentative itinenary:
