The National Olympic Committee of DPR Korea, in association with the DPRK Amateur Athletics Association and Koryo Tours, has confirmed today that the 2023 Mangyongdae Prize International Marathon – also known as the Pyongyang Marathon 2023 – is cancelled due to the ongoing closure of the DPRK border, and COVID-19 pandemic.
It has also been confirmed that the Pyongyang Marathon is now officially changing its name. Previously officially the Mangyongdae Prize International Marathon, and more commonly known as the Pyongyang Marathon, it will now be known as “Pyongyang International Marathon”.
Pyongyang International Marathon
All tours to North Korea (DPRK) are suspended as the borders to the country are all closed. 2023’s Pyongyang Marathon has officially been cancelled, but we are now offering the full range of 2024 Marathon Tours.
All Pyongyang Marathon Tours will be confirmed when the borders are re-opened.
We stay positive and look forward to being back in Pyongyang again for the fantastic event that is the Pyongyang Marathon, and hope you’ll be there to join us to!
