Jeju International Peace Marathon

It was a good day for a race – dry, cool and overcast. It also helped that the course was flat. The race started in Hallim and headed southwards along the coast with different turning points for the different races. There were views across to the sea and the waves on the beach or, at one point, splashing over the sea wall onto the road.

The band played before the start, as they did before the Jeju Mandarin Marathon last November…

…and the crowds stood and faced the other side of the stadium where I assume there was a Korean flag on one of the flagpoles. The guys in the photo below saluted; they may have been in the army, possibly national servicemen.
