The Women's News, which has promoted an 'Ajumma (a term that generally refers to married women) movement' to make women's movement more popular and common, will host the first 'Ajumma Marathon Race' as an occasion to draw attention to the importance of adult women taking care of their health. 

This marathon consists of three courses, so that any female can participate in the race. The 3-km course will be good for beginners who like to enjoy running with their family members. Those who aspire to finish a half or full marathon race in the future are recommended to take a 5-km or 10-km course. 

This race is highly expected to expand the population of female marathon runners in Korea. The upcoming marathon will be held with a cause to raise scholarship fund for women who desire to seek reemployment and to make self-development.
