Seoul Necktie Marathon Promotes Local Businesses

Necktie Marathon

SEOUL, Sept. 30 (Korea Bizwire) – With employees and residents of Guro Digital Complex participating, a 5-kilometer running race took place on Friday in Seoul. What was unusual about the race, however, was that participants had to wear a specific clothing item – a necktie. 

The event was arranged as a part of G Valley Week, which took off on September 29 and is scheduled to wrap up on October 3. The five-day event was arranged to promote Seoul’s former industrial complex that now houses startups and high-tech industries. 

Apart from business conferences and special lectures specific to Guro Digital Complex employees and businesses, events open to the public including a job fair, street performances, and a fashion festival will also take place.
