The ‘2023 Seoul Half Marathon’, a marathon festival to enjoy springtime Seoul, will be held on the 30th.
It is a 21.0975 km course that departs from Gwanghwamun Square at 8:00 am, passes Mapo-daero and Mapo Bridge, passes through Yeouido Park, Nodeul-gil and Yanghwa Bridge, and finishes at Sangam World Cup Park Peace Square. In the 10km segment, Yeouido Park is the arrival point. In April, when spring flowers are in full bloom, it is evaluated as the best course to meet other charms of Seoul while driving freely in the middle of Seoul with two feet. Crossing the Han River Bridge twice while cutting through the spring breeze is the highlight of the competition. 먹튀검증

The Seoul Half Marathon is held as a citizen festival to enjoy and cheer together. Families, lovers, friends, and colleagues run together, and busking performance teams are placed throughout the course to encourage them. In this year’s Seoul Half Marathon, the largest number of busking teams ever participated, including acoustic bands, dances, and traditional music, coloring the city with colorful music and large-scale street performances.
The time limit for the half marathon is 2 hours and 30 minutes, and 10 km is 1 hour and 30 minutes. Luggage storage at the departure point must be completed before 7:20 am. After that, the goods storage vehicle moves to the destination. Since the half marathon and 10km division goal marks are different, items must be stored in accordance with the category for which you have applied. If you do not observe the starting group, the record will not be measured, so you must check the starting time for each category and group.
Drinking water supply stations are usually installed every 5 km. At the 10km and 15km points, banana and choco pies are provided, respectively. Volunteers serve as a lubricant for the progress of the competition throughout the course. The Seoul Half Marathon is building a tight system to keep participants safe. A total of 13 ambulances and paramedics stand by for every 1.5 km of the course, and an automatic cardiac defibrillator is deployed every 1 km.
