Amenities

Storage room / delivery method

Each player will stand by their numbers at the relay point. We don’t offer store room at the relay point due to different running speed of each team and traffic control. As a result, each team will need to keep their belongings by themselves at the relay point.

We recommend following method to keep your belongings: 1st runner hands over his belonging (ex. shirt) to 2nd runner at the first relay point (Cheonggyecheon Dasangyo namdan); 2nd runner hands that shirt over to 3rd runner at the second relay point (Jongno 5-ga intersection); 3rd runner hands it over to 4th runner at the last relay point (Seongdong-gu Sports Center). The 2nd runner of 2-person relay and the 4th runner of 4-person relay keep the shirt in the storage vehicle which travels between the starting point (Gwanghwamun Square) and the finishing point (Jamsil Sports Complex). Then they move to their starting line. After finishing the race, they can pick up their belongings from the vehicle at Jamsil Sports Complex.

All participants may keep their belongings in the storage vehicle at the venue and pick up at the finishing point after the race.
