This on my calender too. The direct flights on Tigerair will be a plus point as well.

The event website is at http://www.chiangmaimarathon.com but currently contains mostly information on the 2013 event.

Before you book on Tigerair, I suggest you keep an eye on Silkair as well - it can be cheaper because their prices include meals, check-in baggage, movies, 'convenience fees', more comfortable seats and much better service.

On the Chiangmai marathon website, there's a listing of the various countries whose runners are taking part in the Chiangmai marathon. Singapore is up there in 3rd position after US and Thailand. Seems like there'll be a sizable contingent of runners from Sg.

Some could be expats working in the region.

Temperature was good throughout (below 25). No crowding as there were about 800 runners for FM. Generally flat course. Not much of crowd support but onlookers and traffic were generally quite considerate. Adequate hydration stations and other stations e.g. water-melons, bananas, muscle spray. For those aiming for PB and not wanting to travel too far, this is a good race to participate.

Temperature was in the mid teens.

Two songs to describe this CMM : 寂寞公路 by 伍思凯 and "The Long and Winding Road" by the Beatles. This mara is truly a road race (road and expressway).

Those who really want to test their mental resolve can try this mara :)

you mean there isnt many supporters (or any) and the race also don't have many runners.... so perhaps there will be some point in time where one will feel all alone...... hmnnn.....

Theres only a couple of hundreds of participants for the FM, hence I can slowly stroll to the front of start point. FM was flagged off at 4 am, HM one hr apart (IIRC).

Yes , few supporters, only road marshalls and policemen to direct traffic as roads aint fully closed as only those divider cones were place to crave out some space for runners. Still a fairly well organized city marathon.

icic.... how about the scenery around the city?? ran thru any nice scenic places?? looks like there aren't supporters other than those at the water stations....hahaha...

Chiangmai is not a very big city. Not much of scenery if you exclude the typical morning scenes of shops and roadside stalls getting ready for business. As for the volunteers at the water stations, I thought they were rather quiet even though they did the refilling of cups and handing them out to runners quite efficiently. The best support came at the finishing point from other runners.

hmnn...... ok... have to reconsider this marathon... and readjust the objective......

Chiang Mai in Dec, is the nearest (not sure abt Vietnam) to SG where you can experience really cool temp, for running / leisure.

Enjoy Chang/Leo/Shingha...massages ....weekend flea markets and lots more...

    • uncle happened to come across this event...150KM or if closer to 160KM (100 miles)...     open till end of 2021...😄 same theme with Round Singapore or Around Singapore or Singapore Round Island.. As long as this is Virtual, Anytime Anyplace, realistically, can you even cover 10KM Challenge or more per day? uncle can. 50KM/160KM is 100 Miles, can you cover in 2 weeks? uncle can. 500KM, can you cover in 2 months? uncle can cover in 1 month. 2,021KM in 1 year? uncle can cover 6,000KM in 1 year. This is just Quantity in Distance Challenge lah...simply if you are registered in SCSM Virtual Club, simply participate in these weekly challenges and virtual races for free, you are motivated to be in the Leaderboard Ranking for free. like what uncle did in April with other 10K VR members who started to accummulate their distances and points...till the last day of the month.. Whether Team Challenge for 100 members or more to do 1680KM...you just need 3 Koh Papa <FOC> to achieve and accomplish...Bronze level. Aiya, uncle already rewarded self with this one... because this is achievable in 2021...and wish there was a Medal for 7,000KM. Now that will be a Real Challenge for uncle. That Challenge will be good enough for GOLD level for this event, right? 🤣
    • @sandy620, message uncle if you are interested, we can talk freely there, for sure, uncle is interested to form a team...for 300 members...do you really need so many? more like for good enough to gather school kids since school holidays are coming... Sad to say, here we have a lots of event thread starters, race recommendations, race reviewers (past and present) not much of participants in running except uncle and a few runners who can do beyond 16km...because of Covid-19, all races are cancelled, so motivation is curbed, and outdoor activities are "not as active as before". maybe you and uncle can do 1680KM... already uncle said monthly 700km, and how many then can you contribute as the other member?..maybe we need only 4-5 members. btw, local virtual races/challenges do not have really appealing to uncle, like sponsor is who? Local fee in SGD price, uncle could look overseas races for more affordable value.. like...for $30++....NB running tee (black), NB finisher tee (white), participant's medallion, a poncho... just need for 42KM... Seoul Marathon 2021...so cool...no idea what is offered for round Singapore one...uncle got high expectation one..😄 uncle is currently exploring Sao Paulo, Brazil...will let all know next time... As uncle has said, PM uncle on your interest...uncle does not talk much, just execute and show results...completes and finishes... 😄
    • ahhhh so busy schedule... was initially thinking that maybe we can form a team *opss* HAHAHAH to join the round Singapore one hehehehehe
    • Yeappp HAHAHAH self challenge!! But we can get more than 10 members if we want... saw most of the teams from this event, some of them got more than 100 members!
