Between Jan 2018 and July 2019, Nick Butter is running a marathon in every country in the world. He'll be doing 196 marathons in 550 days — that's around one every single 68 hours for 18 months non-stop! During this time he will be hoping to break eight world records, and raise more than £250k for cancer research.
Koryo Tours, in conjunction with the Pyongyang Marathon, is proud to be sponsoring the North Korean leg of his journey in April 2018, and excited to offer you this exclusive opportunity to be part of Nick's private group as he spends three nights in the DPRK, and runs the Pyongyang Marathon on Sun 8 April.
Please note that while Nick will be taking on the full marathon, this race can also be run as a half marathon, 10km, or 5km. Hundreds of local runners will be taking part — as well as some elite foreign runners.
As well as the Pyongyang Marathon, we will show you the highlights of Pyongyang city, including a visit to the famous Victorious Fatherland Liberation War Museum and the captured American spy ship, the USS Pueblo.
Nick will also have run marathons in more than 30 countries since the start of 2018 by the time he gets to Pyongyang so will be sure to have plenty of tales to share while on tour together!
