Pyongyang’s annual marathon is your chance to run the streets of the capital along with hundreds of locals and visitors — the most amazing race of your life, exclusively available from Koryo!

The Pyongyang International Marathon, also known as the Mangyongdae Prize International Marathon, has been open to amateur runners since 2014. You can run the 5k, 10k, Half Marathon or Full Marathon. The race is an International Associations of Athletic Federations (IAAF) Bronze Label road race with Association of International Marathons and Distance Races (AIMS) certification. Koryo Tours is the exclusive travel partner of the Pyongyang Marathon.
