Running groups or running routes in Seoul?

I am planning a trip to Vietnam and Korea Oct 7 - 19 and need information on whether there are any running groups in Seoul or good running routes around the city that would be accessible by subway. Also, are there athletic clubs or gyms that I would be able to use while I am out there? My marathon is on Oct. 22, so while I am in Asia I will need to do long runs that are around 10-13 miles. Does anyone know of any running routes or parks that I could run in that are fairly safe? I will probably want to run early in the mornings and I am female so safety would be a concern for me (my husband will be going but he is not a big runner and will probably not want to wake up early in the mornings while we are on vacation).

1. Re: Running groups or running routes in Seoul?

Check out runtheplanet.com and see what is listed for Seoul routes. I was just looking into this same question myself and found a number of useful suggestions. In general, it looks like the place to run is along the south banks of the Hans river. I believe there is a long bicycle path there. Good luck!
