King of the Mountain - The race is on!

King of the Mountain Race / Fun run.

Facebook Event


Everytime I've climbed Wolchulsan, I've thought it would be cool to have a King of the Mountain race. Since no one else was going to organize it, I figured it was up to me, so...

Do you think you can race over a mountain?

The challenge is on. To run from one side of Wolchulsan to the other and be the frist to claim the title of "King of the Mountain!"

The race will take you from near sea level, almost virtically up to 809 meters above sea level, then across a ridge to the second peak of 743m and down the other side, finishing about 8.6 kilometers later, in the beautiful temple surroundings of Dogapsa.

There will be an entrance fee of W5000 and all profits go to the Gukdong Orphanage House in Yeosu.

Prizes will be given for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places, and a certificate for all who enter.

Even if you don't think you're up for the challenge of racing over a mountain, please join in and do a "fun run / walk" with your friends.

Regristration will be from 9am.

The race will start at 10am. (Weather permitting)

Wolchulsan is in Jeollanamdo province close to the small town of Yeongam. It is about 1 hour from Gwangju and 45 minutes from Mokpo (both on the KTX line).

I'm there. I will savor my opponents' defeat as the sweetest of wines, and also helping orphans is good too, I suppose.
