Looking for inspiration? Look no further than Jong Song Ok — one of the DPRK’s greatest-ever athletes. In 1999, she won the women’s marathon at the World Athletics Championships in Seville, Spain. Her story was later made into a movie: Marathon Runner.
That film has now been remixed with music by The Pyongyang Gold Stars thanks to our partners at Koryo Tours. Registration for next year’s race is now open so get in training and maybe you too can be a World Champion like Jong Song Ok.
