Does anybody out there know what the running conditions are like in Korea? I recently signed a contract to go over to Korea to teach english but I would also like to continue running. I know that there are some great marathoners over there but I don't know much else. If anybody has any info. I would greatly appreciate it.
Actually Korea is a really good place to run. I live in Seoul and I have access to about 5 or 6 tracks within an hour subway ride. They just had a big foreigners only race the other day and there are actually starting to be a few good guys here. So far I know of a 3:39 guy, 3:41, a 1:53 and a 30:08 guy along with a few sub 2 guys for 800m. Really good place to also make money and if you get hooked up with a good job, its easy to fit running in as you only work 30 horus a week and often its in the afternoon after 2pm. If anybody else is interested in Korea please email me as I have helped set up a few people in the past.
