Lotte chose three “best dressed” participants or teams with the most unique costumes, regardless of the participant’s finishing times.

On site, an event added more fun to the race day as various services such as face painting and tattoo stickers were offered to participants.

A photo zone was provided for participants to upload their photos onto their social media sites.

All participants were given a Style Run kit composed of functional t-shirts, wrist protectors, sports bags, and portable fans.
