Join 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".

Starting Times for each groups : Elite 8:00 AM , Full 8:05 AM , Half 8:10 AM, 10km 8:15 AM, 5km 8:20 AM. Any faster start will be DQ.
