This is an extended version of the Pyongyang Marathon short tour. Run Pyongyang International Marathon on April 9, 2023. Join a 5K, 10K, half marathon, or full marathon in the mysterious capital of North Korea together with Korean and foreign professional and amateur runners. The marathon is also a major opportunity for foreigners in North Korea to mingle with locals and learn about this country from first-hand experience.
Instead of taking part in the race you may just stay in Kim Il Sung Stadium and watch the marathon and a soccer match between local Korean teams. Before and after the Marathon you will enjoy an extensive sightseeing program in the North Korean capital Pyongyang.
We will also drive to the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) - the strip of land where South and North Korea have been standing off against each other for more than half a century and explore Kaesong - the old capital of Korea during Koryo Dynasty.
On this tour you will have an optional opportunity to take the PYONGYANG AIR CITY TOUR - a 40 minute trip in the skies aboard an Air Koryo Mi-17 helicopter. You will have an unrivaled bird's-eye view of Pyongyang from the sky and a lot of great photo opportunities. If you would like to add this option to your itinerary please inform us when you book your tour.
