16th Midnight Charity Run – Everything You Need to Know

Every year Amari Watergate Bangkok and BMW Thailand hold a Charity Midnight Run on the streets of Bangkok. Entering its 16th term this massive event will take place on Saturday 19 October 2013 and is sure to draw huge crowds and media attention, with more than thousands of runners competing in 6 and 12 kilometre races respectively. It’s a great chance to witness Bangkok’s only race to be held during the evening time, and also to see a different side of the Thai capital’s city streets, typically jammed with bumper-to-bumper traffic, cordoned off thanks to the help and support of the local authorities.

Both races will start and and finishing at Amari Watergate Bangkok, with the 6 kilometre route being on the normally bustling Petchburi Road. Runners on the 12 kilometre route will also briefly be diverted onto Sukhumvit Road, Thailand’s longest road and some its side streets, before returning back onto the finishing line on Petchburi Road.

The event brings a fantastic mix of international and local professional runners, as well as families and friends, who come together to be a part of this great cause. Many turn up in fancy dress, which only contributes to the already fun and cheerful atmosphere!

The funds raised from this charity event will be put to three very important causes:

  1. Chalerm Prakiat School Lampoon – supports the education of those unfortunate children whose parents have tragically passed away due to HIV infection
  2. Baan Gerda Lopburi – a home which supports HIV infected and orphaned children
  3. The Vaht for a Better Life Project

Last year, over 5,100 runners gathered for the Amari Watergate Bangkok and BMW Thailand Midnight Run for charity managed to raise over 3.3 Million Baht, and we’re looking to match and hopefully exceed that number this year!
