Kamsanhimida HT for the info.

I may (HOPE TO!) try out this marathon since i plan to visit Seoul in Oct.

Chuncheon city is ~3hrs from Seoul by bus and is very scenic according to my friend.

Winter Sonata was shot there too I think.

In the Korean DVD series, in many occasions the guy will run after the girl in airport, train station or shopping mall. Whereas, bollywood stars dance from hill to hill. In SG series, the stars got nowhere to dance or run, they just sit at the table to makan.

Temp is ok without wind. Before start wear a disposable rain coat. After running 30 mins, body gets heat up and then optimum temp is reached for peak performance. I did not find too cold when I ran in Beijing. Even at the start time, I stood in the crowd and was protected by the human shield. Learn from penguin.. :Big Grin:

I'll reach seoul on Friday 24th and depart on 28th Tuesday (Deepavali).

introduction

========

The provincial capital city of Gangwon-do Province is nestled in the heart of the famous tourist city of Chuncheon. This city is tucked away in a basin with Uiamho Lake to the west, Chuncheonho Lake and Soyangho Lake to the north, and Sinyeongang River to the south making this a city surrounded by water. The numerous lakes in the region cause many foggy days. Close proximity to Seoul makes this a popular daytrip destination.

This popular riverside tourist destination has many places to visit, including Namiseom, Jungdo Island, Cheongpyeongsa Temple, Gongjicheon area, Wido Island, Soyanggang River, Samaksan Mountain, Deongseon Waterfall, Gugok Waterfall, Jipdarigol Natural Forest, and Chuncheon Hunting Camp. Looking at the topography of Chuncheon, one can clearly tell that it is a lakeside city, with Wido, Namiseom, and Uiam Islands near the center. As a result, aquatic sports are very popular. There are regular ferries at Soyangho, Uiam, and Chuncheon Lakes; many people enjoy fishing in these areas. Famous foods in Chuncheon include makguksu and dakgalbi.

Festivals in the region include the Snow and Ice Festival, Chuncheon International Mime Festival, Chuncheon Anitown Festival, Chuncheon Makguksu Festival, MBC Riverside Song Festival, Chuncheon Puppet Festival and Chuncheon International Theatre Festival. Chuncheon also hosts the Chuncheon International Marathon and the Korea Open Chuncheon International Taekwondo Championship. The many festivals in the region make it a great place to visit any time of the year.

Chuncheon's main Tourist Attractions

=========================

Cheongpyeongsa Temple; Namiseom Island; Soyangho Lake; Chuncheon's Myeong-dong Street; Jungdo Island; Gongjicheon Area; Gangchon Recreational Area.
