Professional and amateur runners are invited to join the "Bitec Half Marathon 2013" at the Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Centre (Bitec) on Sunday.
Celebrating Bitec's 15th anniversary, the race will be held on Bang Na-Trat Road for the first time. There are four categories to choose from - a half-marathon (21.1km) and mini-marathon (12km) for experienced runners, and a micro marathon (4km) and walk/fun run (2km) for the less experienced.
The top five finishers of each age group in each category will be awarded a trophy, plus cash prizes worth up to 10,000 baht for the half-marathon, and up to 6,000 baht for the mini-marathon. Every entrant in the walk/fun run who dresses up in a fancy costume will get a souvenir.
All marathon runners who complete the race in their category will be given a "Gold Finisher Medal" at the finish line.
The entry fee is 350 baht for the half-marathon (limited to 800 entrants), 300 baht for the mini-marathon (limited to 1,200 entrants) and 250 baht for the micro-marathon and the walk/fun run (limited to 1,500 entrants).
