Like so many other things in Thailand today, the organisation of races is a rapidly changing scene. The main organizers these days are Jog and Joy, Sports Vision, Blue Runners and Running Sports. Amazing Field (World Actions) still have some runs as do Pro Sports and a few others. Jog and Joy, Sports Vision and Blue Runners all produce monthly magazines full of wonderful information, results, calendars and picturs, but of course all in Thai. Several of them now also have good web sites (see above) but once again almost exclusively in Thai. The only easy way to get the magazine(s) is to be at a race, typically one or other is available at the race - 40 Bt. Or they will be very happy to take your subscription. But be careful however, all calendars are somewhat unreliable - until such time as you have the entry form it is difficult to be absolutely certain of the date. The quality of events varies enormously. Many are organised by running clubs or by charity organisations. Many however are organised professionally. The vast majority of races have excellent trophies. Normally every entrant will receive a T-shirt, every finisher will receive a medallion (usually a very substantial souvenir) and the first five (sometimes seven, sometimes three) finishers in each age group will get a trophy. There is nearly always food and drink after the race and all races have plentiful water stops along the way.

1. Thai Running

Thai Running have an enormous web site with details of all races and lots of photos and onterviews and advice and stuff like that.

The magazine is produced monthly and contains a list of forthcoming races as well as results of past events and articles about running, nutrition etc. It is normally only available from Jog & Joy, or on subscription, but they always have some for sale at race events.

Robinsons, the department store are the major sponsor of running events in Bangkok and Thailand. At every branch of Robinson there is an information desk at which entry forms for most running events can be had, and entries may also be submitted.

4. Sports Vision

Sports Vision produces a monthly magazine and organises events. The best place to get the magazine is at an actual race event. Sports Vision has an office at 53/247 Moo 2 Soi Satri Wittaya 2, which is off Thanon Lad Phrao, Soi 71 (Soi Nat Niwat). This is quite close to Nostri Wittaya School.

6. The Hash

The Hash House Harriers and Harriets are very active in Bangkok, but their activities are directed mainly towards ex-pats and therefore not difficult to access.
