Reports reach us from beautiful Jeju island in South Korea, of the latest training efforts for The Moodie Report Great Travel Retail Educathlon – the 2013 follow-up to the hugely successful Moodie Multi-National Marathons of the past two years, which have raised over US$650,000 across the worldwide travel retail community.
There, Kenny (Young Jin) Kim (pictured above), Senior Manager at JDC Duty Free Shop, plans to walk and run the 7k distance with his son and daughter.
The pictures below show the Kims training in surely one of this year’s most idyllic locations. I’ve had the privilege of visiting Jeju twice and it holds a fond place in my memory. This island of less than 500,000 people is a wondrous, tranquil place, with a magnificent, often rugged coastline and a now extinct volcano at its centre, part of a Natural World Heritage Site. Looking at these pictures makes me to vow to return.
