Coach Hojun Jang of Infinite Opportunity

Participants run 5 kilometers with their families the day before the race and enjoy it like a festival.”

Coach Jang, who coaches a wide range of runners from elite athletes to beginners, says, “Every week, there are people who say, ‘I’m running for the first time in my life.’ I also get encouraged when I see people who have always run alone running with strangers, high-fiving each other, and running new courses.” “Whether it’s 7979 SURC or Shakeout Run, we will prepare a fun run so that even if you come alone, you won’t feel like you’ve come for nothing,” he said.
Participants of the Seoul Run can sign up for the Shakeout Run at the Dongma Club (www.dongma.club) from 10 a.m. on the 27th.
