Dong-gu, Daejeon (District Mayor Hwang In-ho) held the opening event of the 'Contactless Daecheongho Cherry Blossom Road Marathon' on the 21st, which will be held in a non-face-to-face manner until June 6.
The Contactless Daecheongho Cherry Blossom Road Marathon will be held from the 21st to the 6th of next month in a non-face-to-face manner using GPS apps to prevent the spread of Corona 19.
This competition has four courses: ▲ Full Course ▲ Half Course ▲ 10 km Mini-Course ▲ 5 km Health Course. Due to Corona 19, participants can participate in the marathon in all regions of Dong-gu without gathering in any one region, and if they complete the certification (app capture photo based on GPS), they will receive a certificate medal and a certificate.
The opening event was held in compliance with the government's quarantine guidelines, including minimizing the number of participants and setting up on-site quarantine gates to check for symptoms of COVID-19 infection.
Hwang In-ho, Dong-gu District Mayor, said, "We will hold this event in a non-face-to-face manner amid difficult conditions due to Corona 19." "We hope this marathon will give joy and vitality to people who are tired of Corona 19."
Meanwhile, about 2,000 people have applied for the Contactless Daecheongho Cherry Blossom Road Marathon, which is drawing keen attention from marathon club members and residents across the country, although it was conducted in a non-face-to-face manner rather than an on-site manner due to Corona 19.
