The Tour de DMZ: 2022 International Road Cycling Tour on Aug. 26 began its five-day run to end on the 30th along the Demilitarized Zone separating both Koreas.

The event's theme is "Challenge, Passion and Running on Peace Road" (unofficial translation).

Debuting in 2016 and canceled both in 2020 and last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the annual race has been resumed this year on its fifth anniversary. 

The competition comprises five events including the International Youth Road Cycling Race, Masters Road Cycling Race for athletes registered with the Korea Cycling Federation and a BMX contest. 

As Asia's only youth competition endorsed by UCI, cycling's world governing body, the youth race will cover 550 km starting from Goyang, Gyeonggi-do Province, and pass through Ganghwa-gun County in Incheon, Paju and Yeoncheon County in Gyeonggi-do, and the counties of Cheorwon-gun and Inje-gun before ending in Goseong-gun County, all three in Gangwon-do Province. 

The masters race will span a 310-km section from Goyang to Cheorwon-gun.

The event is expected to have about 2,000 participants including 144 on 16 domestic and international youth teams and 226 on 28 domestic teams in the masters division.
