Bangkok Ultra Trail next weekend


Adventure racers will be flocking to the capital next weekend for the The Bangkok Ultra Trail Festival 2014, which is being staged at the Korean International School in Nong Chok on Sunday, August 3.

Consisting of a series of 7km laps, the race will take place in the rural splendor of Thai farmland, immersing the runners in the picturesque environment of green paddy fields, wildlife and the 3km long Nong Chok Fishing Park Lake.  It promises to offer a breath of fresh air while still being in close proximity to bustling Bangkok (only a 45 minute drive from Bangkok city center).
