Running in Seoul

Not far from Hyehwa Subway Station you can find the canal that stretches from Dongdaemun History and Culture Park all the way to the Koart Ville dormitory. Besides going for a walk and watching the sunset, this is probably the closest and most convenient place to go for a run for those of you who like jogging. For a longer run, however, I recommend taking the subway to the Han river. At Dongjak station you get directly to a nice park area that's perfect for a 10k+.  

So far I have participated in two 10k races in Seoul and I will attempt a half marathon in May. It is a lot of fun and I can only recommend to get together with a group of people and sign up for the next race. Its a great experience to take back home. The races usually take place at the Han river and cost between 20.000-30.000 won (about $15-$25).
