Seychelles’ honorary consul in South Korea Dong Chang Jeong approached the Seychelles government 9 years ago with his vision for a Seychelles marathon that would encourage a healthy lifestyle, unify Seychellois and visiting athletes, and raise the profile of the Seychelles brand.


For the first marathon, there were about 330 runners of 19 nationalities who took part in this event.
