The National Olympic Committee of DPR Korea, in association with the DPRK Amateur Athletics Association and Koryo Tours, have confirmed today that the 2020 Mangyongdae Prize International Marathon – also known as the Pyongyang Marathon – is cancelled due to the ongoing closure of the DPRK border, and COVID-19 virus situation in China and the greater region.
The marathon organisers wish to convey their gratitude to all the participants who had signed up for the 2020 Pyongyang Marathon, for their patience and understanding during this difficult time.
The next edition of the Pyongyang Marathon will be in April 2021 with the date to be confirmed shortly. The organisers hope to, and look forward to seeing everyone at the 2021 event in Pyongyang.
Please contact your travel company for further information if you are affected by this cancellation.
