    Any good hotel near the starting point?
  3. Amazing Thailand Marathon Bangkok 2018

    I wish they didnt put cheesy line "unforgettable marathon" accross the shirt though.
  4. Run past some of Bangkok’s most iconic landmarks in the Amazing Thailand Marathon Bangkok 2018 Approximately 30,000 runners from all around the world are expected to join the first edition of the Amazing Thailand Marathon Bangkok presented by Toyota, which is set to take place on February 4, 2018. The event is being organised under a five-year agreement between IRONMAN, the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) and Thailand Tri-League. The Amazing Thailand Marathon Bangkok 2018 presented by Toyota will enable runners of all abilities the opportunities to choose from four different race distances: Marathon (42.195km), Half-Marathon (21.1km), 10km and a Family Fun Run (4km). The event will start with a Sports and Lifestyle Expo at Bangkok Airport Rail Link, from February 1-3, 2018. The Family Fun Run will take place on 3 February, on a 4km route packed with entertainment around the Airport Rail Link. On Sunday, February 4, marathon runners will start their race at 2:30 a.m. from Rajamangala Stadium, while half-marathon and 10km participants will begin their day near the Democracy Monument at 5 a.m. and 6 a.m., respectively. The event will feature a unique city-centric course that will take runners past some of Bangkok’s amazing landmarks such as the Victory Monument, King Rama V Monument, and Rama VIII Bridge before heading to the finish line at the Democracy Monument. Organisers have worked with local authorities in order to offer runners an exceptional race experience – an early morning flag-off for cooler conditions and full road closures for a safe run. Runners will be encouraged all along the route by entertainment performances.

    So the insight data is out, pretty much 32k is the dominant category

    Didnt see any pacer. So considering race day observations : Pros: Plenty of hydration, less crowd (one wave only i think) , good weather, cold towel, massage station (less crowd also), elm medal Cons: No pacer, no banana point (think they mistakenly said in fb have banana point), questionable planning (diversion point was changed on the actual day?), was expecting sandwich turn out to be beehoon goreng, so-so shirt (all race nowadays also same so-so quality), technically can run the exact route on your own non-stop.
  7. I think I would still be running around east coast when the firework start

    Well maybe thats why they call it newton challenge, not newton run. Hope to be there in the first wave!

    Well except for the Marina East Drive road. Probably it will be diverted through PCN, which might will be less than 1 km difference if it is.
  10. Newton Challenge 2017 - 29 Oct (Sun), Marina Barrage

    I dont think the diversion is due to road closure. The 10km starts at 7am and runs the same route. Its really weird with 4 hours left after diversion.

    How stringent are they with the diversion point?2:45 for the 21.3km seems tight (for me), especially if we are way back on the start line.
