The official race bulletin for the 29th edition of the Mangyongdae Prize International Marathon – the 2018 Pyongyang Marathon – has been released by the DPR Korea Amateur Athletics Association.
This official bulletin confirms important information for all amateur athletes participating in the 2018 race. This includes that the route for the marathon will again follow the same return route introduced for the 2017 event including the very popular race start and finish inside Kim Il Sung Stadium in front of 50,000 people, and that the official full marathon race time limit has been extended to 4.5 hours – now you have more time to finish your race and achieve your personal best!
The bulletin also confirms that the organising committee continue to work with Koryo Tours as the exclusive rights holder for all amateur athletes, with the exception of athletes from some south east Asian countries. This means that by traveling with Koryo Tours to get to the Pyongyang Marathon you are automatically guaranteed entry into the marathon.
