The lighting of the Olympic flame in Olympia on August 23 began the Olympic Torch Relay for the 1988 Seoul Games. The relay lasted 26 days, and during the ceremony in Athens, a Korean instrumental group performed traditional Korean folk music.

The flame traveled by aeroplane from Greece to Cheju, on the southern tip of Korea. The Olympic Torch Relay then traveled by boat to Pusan, and then proceeded through all of Korea's provinces and historical areas.

Means of transporting the flame included runners, horses, boats, bicycles, aeroplanes and motorcycles. The relay was 15250 kilometres long and approximately 1900 runners took part.
