Our North Korea Marathon Tours are among our most popular, and surely one of the most unique ways to see the Peoples Democratic of North Korea! This incredible event is only the fifth year that foreign tourists and amateurs are welcomed to compete or spectate from the grandstands of Kim Il Sung Stadium. Get stuck in and compete side by side with local athletes or enjoy the opportunity to watch the opening and closing of the ceremony in the heart of the stadium with 70,000 locals cheering on.

As well as a unique opportunity to participate in the annual North Korea Marathon in Pyongyang, we will also be in the country for one of the most important events in the North Korean calendar – President Kim Il Sung’s 105th birthday! Expect fireworks, dancing with the locals, a celebratory banquet, and some live music to mark this momentous occasion.

This tour also takes in the must see sites of Pyongyang city including the Pyongyang Metro, Korean War Museum, and a trip to the infamous Demilitarised Zone (DMZ).
