The Australian embassies in Bangkok and Vientiane, in cooperation with the Nong Khai Provincial Office, Nong Khai Running Club and Vientiane Municipality, present the "Thai-Laos Friendship Bridge Fun Run" on Nov 18 at 6am.
The 5km fun run is organised in celebration of the 60th anniversaries of Australia's diplomatic relations with Thailand and the Lao People's Democratic Republic this year.
