BANGKOK, 10 August 2017: MICE & Communication with VOGUE will organise Bangkok Women’s Run in partnership 3 September here in the Thai capital.
As many as 3,000 female runners could attend based on the organiser’s estimated maximum capacity for the run, which takes places entirely on the Rama 8 Bridge and its approach roads on either side of the river.
The Sunday fun run will start at Rama 8 Bridge and will follow a route certified by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) and the Association of International Marathons and Distance Races (AIMS).
Highlights include finisher’s necklaces instead of medals and special gifts for the top 100 finishers sponsored by T Mark Project of Department of International Trade Promotion (DITP), Ministry of Commerce.
VOGUE Thailand will host a special activity with a photography studio with professional photographers to snap finishers, creating a new experience for women confident in their strength and beauty.
The run gained its inspiration from Thai and foreign women who in the past travelled overseas to join in exclusive women’s races in other countries.
MICE joined hands with fop fashion magazine VOGUE to establish an exclusive women’s run and to gather women runners to show their strength and beauty in their own style.
The event will have three categories based on distances: 5, 10 and 21.1 Km (the traditional half-marathon). The start and finish line will be on Rama 8 Bridge with the entire race taking place on the bridge. Runners will get a chance to enjoy the beautiful Bangkok panorama and the Chao Phraya River, one of the most scenic routes in Bangkok and possibly a once-in-a-lifetime chance to run this iconic route. Both the 10 km and 21.1 km distance runs in this race will be officially certified.
Tourism Authority of Thailand pledged to support the event internationally focusing its promotions on women runners in Japan, China, Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia.
The run is now open for registration at www.bangkokwomensrun.com/.
