Informazioni Dong-a Ilbo Gyeongju International Marathon

The Dong-A Ilbo Gyeongju International Marathon is an annual road running event over the marathon distance (42.195 km) which takes place in mid-October in the historical city Gyeongju, South Korea. The competition now features an international elite-level marathon race for both men and women, as well as amateur fun run events over the half marathon, 10K and 5K distances. 

The event is one of a series of races in the country (alongside the Baekje Marathon and Seoul International Marathon) which are sponsored by The Dong-a Ilbo, a Korean daily broadsheet.

Gyeongju was the capital of the ancient kingdom of Silla (57 BC – 935 AD) and was by then the fourth largest city in the world. A vast number of archaeological sites and cultural properties from this period remain in the city and Gyeongju is often referred to as "the museum without walls".
