Seoul Marathon 2018

The Seoul International Marathon, which also goes by the name Dong-A Ilbo Seoul Marathon, is a road race held annually each March in Seoul. The event offers a full marathon and a 10K category.

Inaugurated in 1931, it is the third longest-running road running competition in Asia, and holds the distinguishing title of being an IAAF Gold Label road race. The South Korean National Record for marathon distance has been set 10 times in this distinguishing race, which draws around 20,000 participants each year.

The starting point of the race is Gwanghwamun Plaza, located in the heart of the city.

Runners leave the main plaza, run through the Sejongno thoroughfare and pass the statue of Yi Sun-sin. The route then continues past the Namdaemun gateway and head through Cheonggyecheon park, tracing a path through Dongdaemun-gu district before crossing the Han River. The marathon finishes at the Jamsil Olympic Stadium.
