Run past some of Bangkok’s most iconic landmarks in the Amazing Thailand Marathon Bangkok 2018


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.

I booked my accommodation from 2-4 Feb at Prime Hotel Central Station Bangkok, which is right opposite the main train station in central Bangkok. It's only costing me $67/night. It's not near the starting point, but it's quite close to the finishing point. I'll just Grab a car to the starting point at Rajamangala Stadium.

I'll be flying off to BKK late Friday evening after work. And flying back on Sunday afternoon right after the race. Too rush for a family trip. I'll be traveling solo.

More important ones are actually the more torturous ones...ultras. Will need to take extra day off to recuperate, so saving my leaves hahaha

Actually should take one day to recuperate, this being a sundown so you will be exhausted after the run due to lack of sleep. 

If you finish in 5 hours, means you will reach back hotel around 10am, and room check out is 12pm, so you won't have much time to rest and have to rush to the airport.

Even if you don't want to stay 1 more day in bangkok, should take the Monday off to rest at home.

That was initially the plan, but accumulating my leaves for CNY. Will access my condition once i'm back in Sg. If really cannot take it, will take urgent leave on Monday. Thanks bro.

    • 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!
