A major international sporting date on Thailand’s calendar of festivals and events is the Pattaya Marathon, and 2018 marks the 27th edition of this popular race with organisers expecting 10,000 runners from around the world.

With the venue being the renowned seaside resort city of Pattaya, situated 140 km from Bangkok, runners will have picturesque coastal scenery through which to enjoy a different perspective of this ever-popular destination.

This is in line with the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT)’s Amazing Thailand’s ‘Open to the New Shades’ communication concept – to experience Thailand from new and existing perspectives.

The ‘Pattaya Marathon 2018’ race route is sure to impress all participants and spectators. It begins at Central Festival Pattaya Beach on Pattaya Beach Road and runs alongside Jomtien beach, passing Pattaya walking street, Bali Hai Pier and Borommaratchachonnani bridge on the way. There’s a challenging uphill stretch of 2 km towards Khao Phra Tamnak, Jomtien Sai 2, Sukumvit Road and Chaiyaphruek Road before the route turns back to Pattaya Beach Road and the finish line.

The ‘Pattaya Marathon 2018’ race program includes five categories of run – the 42.195 km marathon, 21.100 km half-marathon, 10.550 km quarter marathon and wheelchair quarter marathon, and 3.7 km students fun run and fun run.

The full marathon starts at 03.00 Hrs. and follows the above route, while the half-marathon begins at 05.10 Hrs from Bali Hai Pier and runs the same route as the full marathon from this point. The quarter marathon starts from Bali Hai Pier at 05.45 Hrs. with its route passing the lighthouse and Pattaya view point and continuing downhill at Khao Phra Tamnak to Pattaya 3 Road before turning back to the starting point for the finish.

The wheelchair quarter marathon starts at 06.20 Hrs. and the students fun run and fun run at 06.30 Hrs. from Dolphin Circle in North Pattaya, and these head to Sukhumvit Road and back again to go along Beach Road for the finish.

Rewards for runners will be souvenirs, shirts, trophies, medals and cash for the top five runners in the 42.195 km marathon, 21.100 km half-marathon, 10.500 km quarter marathon, 3.7 km fun run, 3.7 wheelchair quarter marathon and 3.7 km students fun run (except the souvenirs). The male and female runners with the best time will also receive a specific award.
