     AAT President Pol. Gen. Sant Sarutanond said, “This is the third time the event has been held by the AAT. The past two years were successful – a huge number of runners participated. The event follows all international protocols and our staff members will be there taking care of all runners throughout the routes. It’s a great opportunity for you to join us.”

     Mr. Tanya Vongnak, Business Development Senior Manager at BEC-Tero Entertainment, the event organiser said “We’d like to thank the government and private organizations that have supported the event and played an important role in its organization the past two years. This race has become so popular among runners that last year’s race sold out in no time. We are confident that this year’s event will be just as successful as the previous editions. All the veteran runners know that the route is surrounded by beautiful scenery and a major highlight is running across the Bridge on the River Kwai - the province's most important historical symbol. Both private and state sectors, including local hotels and restaurants are ready to welcome all runners on 9 December which is a pleasant time of the year. Registrations are now open for 2,000 Half Marathon runners, 3,000 Mini Marathon runners, and 3,000 participants in the Fun Run. We’d like to encourage runners to join us in this spectacular event”.

     Sataworn “Kru Din” Chanpongsri, former Thailand national team runner, invited all runners to join: “It’s a great opportunity that you should not miss. Kanchanaburi is a wonderful place and the costs are not high. I’ve joined the event before and I was truly impressed”.
