Participants of the marathon must check their health status first before deciding whether they can finish the course they have applied for. In case an emergency situation occurs during the marathon, stop immediately and ask for assistance from the medical team and the staffs.

The event organizers are not to be held responsible for injuries and accidents caused by carelessness and health issues.

Usually, professional runners run with tightly tied light running shoes or there are those who wear thick socks and tie the shoelaces to their ankles.

Do not run with bare feet.

The festival site is provided with well sieved mud from the mudflat but the area where the marathon will be held is an actual mudflat with seashells so you may injure your feet.

Being a free event, participants must remember to take care of themselves. Organizers are not to be held responsible for injuries and accidents due to carelessness or health issues.

Participants must bring extra clothes, underwear, socks (must be worn), and towel. Socks are sold at the site as well.

About the festival

The most awaited time for the people during the marathon is when they get messy at the mudflat. This is not a competition for the best record but for everyone to experience and enjoy the mudflat.

We do not issue certificates. (Those who wish to have completion medal must provide 3000 won)

We hope you will make unforgettable memories in the vast mudflat.
