Up coming EVENT-28 February 2016. The Seychelles Islands... the land of perpetual summer where a friendly, people and a vibrant, authentic culture conspire with legendary natural beauty and uncanny tranquillity to offer the vacation of a lifetime.
Every year, against this backdrop of almost surreal splendour and surprising levels of diversity that include both towering, granitic islands and low-lying coral atolls, species of flora & fauna that are amongst the rarest on the planet and the multi-ethnic roots of the welcoming population, Seychelles plays host to the Seychelles Eco-Friendly Marathon.
The inaugural race, which was held in 2008, was the brainchild of Mr. Dong Chang Jeong, Seychelles' Honorary Consul General for South Korea with the aims of enhancing Seychellois health, providing for interaction between Seychellois and foreign participants, attracting overseas runners and leisure travellers and strengthening Seychelles' brand image worlwide.
Seychelles Eco-Friendly Marathon provides a unique opportunity for marathon runners across the globe not only to savour the experience of running through some of the most amazing countryside on earth, but enjoy a unique opportunity for healthy living and for the recalibration of mind, body & soul in harmony with the rhytms of nature.
The event is wonderfully complemented by a special Korean Gala Dinner, due to be held on Sunday 28th February 2016. It is a unique chance to experience the wonders of Korean culture and cuisine and will also be the occasion for the prize giving ceremony for Seychelles Eco-Friendly Marathon winners.
The breathtakingly-beautiful course of the marathon meanders down the East coast of Mahe, Seychelles' principal island, between virgin, forest-covered hillsides and the dappled waters of a limpid, sapphire ocean.
If it is true that inspiration is drawn from one's environment, then there can be few purer forms of motivation than that supplied by Seychelles' Eco-Friendly Marathon. To participate in this event is to obey Nature's call to convene at place we have all long dreamed exists: a mythical place of ultimate harmony where tired spirits can be refreshed and worries washed away. Somewhere with the space to breathe the purest air and ample room to stroll trackless, powder-soft sands of breathtaking beaches. A place for the senses to feast on the endless delight of fresh experiences. A place where Man's timeless yearning for harmony folds seamlessly into reality.
