2017 Pyongyang Marathon Venue

The venue for the Pyongyang Marathon in 2016 was was changed from the Kim Il Sung Stadium, which was under renovation, to the May Day Stadium which incidentally is the largest seater stadium in the world with capacity for 150,000 people! Although the top stands were not full, the atmosphere was again electrifying with thousands of Koreans cheering on both Korean and foreign runners.

Next year the opening and closing ceremonies will be held at the Kim Il Sung Stadium again. Please click on our our 2017 Pyongyang Marathon Review to have an idea of what it will be like in 2017. We expect the stadium to be at full capacity! As it is hard to describe the atmosphere, we recommend you to check our 2017 Pyongyang Marathon video below:
