Buriram Run 2012

Posted on: December 6th, 2011 by Philip No Comments

Hopefully readers will recall my earlier account-still in this archive, of my participation in the 2011 ‘Run For Wiwat’ in Buriram. I am pleased to advise that next year’s run will be staged on  19th February,2012 in Buriram town, Runs will be over 3, 5 and 10k,see the jog and joy site for more details. Last year’s event was a pleasure to be involved in; the run was well organised with water stops and distance markers, plus as one would expect in NE Thailand a lot of friendly people organising, running and watching, and its for a good cause, with proceeds going toward the local Fund for Orphans.Buriram is easily accessible from Bangkok, buses leave Morchit and Nakhon Chai terminals regularly, the trip takes around 6 hours, there are plenty of good value hotels in Buriram town, plus several local sites of interest.Make a note in your diary now.
