Information

A fun run through scenic Bangkok parks next month will raise education money for children left orphaned by violence in the three southernmost provinces. TMB and ING banks are holding a charity mini marathon with the slogan "make the difference" from 5.30am on Sept 15. There will be three distances including a walking option, and all participants will start in front of Chatuchak Park (opposite TMB Bank's headquarters on Phahon Yothin Road). The 2km walk will be within Chatuchak Park and the 4km run also includes the adjacent Queen Sirikit Park. The 10.5km mini marathon will stretch out to include a third park, Wachira Benjathas Park (Suan Rot Fai). There are 18 categories for competitors, according to gender and age. This year's event will raise education money for the TMB Foundation which supports children orphaned by violence in the South. Competitors are being asked to set their distance goals via the website www.makethedifference.org/parkrun and share the registered pages on the Facebook. The top three in each category will be awarded cash prizes worth 5,000, 2,000 and 1,000 baht, respectively, plus a trophy. Any runner who makes it to the finish line will receive a medal. Tickets cost 300 baht including a T-shirt and are available from Thai Ticket Major booths until Sept 10. For more information, contact TMB Call Center on 1558 or visit makethedifference.org/parkrun and tmbbank.com/parkrun.
