The official race bulletin for the 30th edition of the Mangyongdae Prize International Marathon – the 2019 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 2019 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 is 4.5 hours.
It also confirms that the race entry fee for the 5km event has decreased and for 2019 will be just $50 USD to enter.
The bulletin also confirms that the organising committee continues to work with Koryo Tours as the exclusive rights holder for all amateur athletes, with the exception of runners 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.
