Jeju Island has a marvelous natural environment and has been designated a UNESCO world natural heritage site. You will have the chance to experience a most beautiful trail and create good memories. We will go through the meadow with horses, the Gotjawal Forest, and Tarabi oreum—the volcanic cone known as the "queen" among 380 volcanic cones here, and the windmill area. You will see Mt. Halla—the highest mountain in South Korea—the sea, Seongsan IlchulBong (Seongsan Sunrise Peak) and the windmill. We will walk or run about four and a half miles, When we return, we'll have local food and chat with special coffee. Please come and join us.
I work as a event director organizing Jeju International Trail Running and Trans Jeju events. I was born on Jeju Island, so I can give you the chance of running through the unique and hidden trail on Jeju. I work with your co-host, Ahn, who was also born in Jeju. He has special running experiences such as running 1,500 miles across France and Germany in 35 days; winning a 150-mile race in the Gobi Desert in China; winning the North Pole Marathon; and finishing the 100-mile Ultra Trail Mont Blanc. With us, you can learn whatever you want to know about this trail run.

We will be in the village of Gasiri, well known for wind, horses, and canola flowers. Jeju horses, provided in the past as tribute items, are bred in pastures in semi-mountainous areas. You can feel the wind of Jeju and enjoy riding a horse. In spring, the big canola festival is held, and many tourists visit this town to see canola and cherry blossoms. During fall, you can enjoy watching the silver grass dancing in the Tarabi oreum.
This trail is easy and fun for beginners. Wear appropriate clothes and shoes. We will give you water to take on the run.
