If you want an insight into what it’s like to run a marathon in Pyongyang then check out this video made by our partners at Koryo Tours. It tells the story of the 2015 race, and follows some of the Western tourists who signed up to compete in this most exclusive of races. The 2016 edition will be only the third time in history that foreign amateurs will be permitted to take part. But please note that all Westerners must sign up via an authorized travel company, such as Koryo Tours. See you at the start line!
