9th Annual Amari Watergate Hotel & BMW Group Thailand
Charity Midnight Run is the only race in Bangkok to start
at exactly midnight. The race offers competitors a choice
of two distances - 6 km or 12 km - along the busy city
streets of Bangkok, protected by a 300-men strong contingent
of police officers and security guards.
Despite the late
start there's huge support each year from local residents
and shop owners along the route, resulting in a tremendous
party atmosphere. Over 1,900 runners took part last year
and even more are expected this time around.
Registration fee is Thai Baht 1,000.- (This fee
entitles entrants to the lucky draw, however,
Baht 300.- fee is also available for a direct
registration with the Amari Watergate Hotel). All income of the race will be donated to an AIDS victims orphanage in Lopburi. All tickets will take part in a “Lucky draw” with
