Mega fun with charity run

Megabangna invites people from all walks of life to participate in the "Megarun International Half Marathon 2016" on Nov 6.

Held for the third year to promote good health and raise funds for the Ramathibodi Foundation to support the construction of Chakri Naruebodindra Medical Institute, the charity run has three distances — a 21.1km half marathon which will kick off at 5am, a 10.5km mini-marathon which will start at 6am and a 5km fun walk/run which will begin at 6am. The start/finish line is in front of Megabangna.

The route for all three races will be on the main course of Bang Na-Trat Road (outbound section only) which will be closed to traffic from Bang Na intersection to Bang Na-Trat KM8 from 4-8am on race day. The top five running clubs with the largest number of participants will receive plaques of honour and the top five male and female finishers of each age group will be awarded trophies and cash prizes worth more than 300,000 baht in total. Every runner who can make it to the finish line will receive a commemorative medal.

There will also be special prizes for those who wear fancy costumes that reflect the theme, "Making the Best Use of Recyclable Materials".

The fee is 700 baht for the half marathon, 400 baht for the mini marathon and 300 baht for the fun run — all inclusive of a T-shirt. Places are limited to 5,000 runners and registration should be made by Oct 30.
