UCON’s first run took place at Namsan Park. For them it’s a special spot where they’ve met various inspirational runners, ranging from senior citizens to the blind. Compared to other running spots, Namsan is not an easy course and it may seem daunting to beginners. But if you swallow your fears and give it two or three gos, you’ll learn to appreciate Namsan’s curves and hills. For experienced runners, Namsan is the perfect place to train. Another plus is that you’ll meet plenty of other runners and get a great view of Seoul.
