On October 18th, 32 parents, students, alumni and staff participated in the annual Seoul 10K Race. Thanks to the coordination of Mrs. Mikki Yoon, the Knights had their own bright orange t-shirts with “GSIS KNIGHTS ‘10’” on the back to demonstrate the number of years the school has been opened.
After catching the school bus at 6 am, the GSIS participants met 10,000 other runners in Seoul Plaza in perfect temperatures for this annual event. The Knights started the race together at 8 am and quickly spread out based on their experience and expertise. Among the early leaders was Christopher Jung (Class of 2017) followed closely by Mr. Wei Liu (parent of Xingshen Liu, grade 5). All participants finished the race under the 1:30:00 time limit including walkers and runners alike.
The top five runners included: Christopher Jung ('17), parent Mr. Wei Liu, David Kim (‘17), and parents Mrs. Fumiko Kimura and Mrs. Masaki Koyama. Congratulations to all the participants for their willingness to rise early and be a part of this fun event.
