History

The Seychelles Eco-Friendly Marathon took place for the first time in 2008. It was initiated by Mr. Dong Chang Jeong, Seychelles Honorary Consul General for South Korea, who is also head of the Seychelles Tourist Office in Korea.  The event was conceived to contribute to Seychellois health and to unify Seychellois and visitors. The marathon indeed helps to bring Seychelles to the attention of more travelers and contributes to lifting the Seychelles brand around the world.
