Under the sponsorship of DPRK Athletic Association, Autumn Amateur Marathon 2018 will be held on Sep. 23, Juche 107 (2018).

In cooperation with IAAF, DPRK AA has hosted the Mangyongdae Prize International Marathon in April annually for about 30 years. The 29th has taken place this year. As a sequence of this tradition, the Autumn Amateur Marathon has made its 1st step in 2017 and the 2nd will proceed in coming September.

The competition is divided into marathon (42.195Km), half marathon (21.0975Km), 10Km and 5Km running.

As it is to be in progress in Pyongyang in the season of “high sky and plump horses” when all things become ripe and turn red, the marathon will be a hit to meet the expectation of athletes and amateurs from many countries and regions.

Warm welcome to the participants in the Autumn Amateur Marathon 2018 in Pyongyang.
