What we're about

Hi and welcome to Bangkok Runners.

Our group started running together in June 2012 and we have been steadily growing in numbers, meetups, events and distances run.

Several of us are training for events, several have run Ultra Marathons, several are just starting out and several are cross training for other events such as Triathlons.

We are really mixed in experience, goals, age and nationalities.

What unites us?

We enjoy running, we enjoy running together and enjoy meeting up whether running, eating or drinking.

If you would like to get fitter, stay fit, lose weight, run more, run more often, make some new friends, sweat more, or are just a bit crazy you will probably enjoy yourself, and we you.

If you are thinking about running but not sure about a group, please come and join us for 2-3 runs BEFORE signing up. All the details are on meetup, and you are welcome to come and join us for a run. After a few months we delete members who don't ever run or check the meetup website, just to keep email down and to be really clear who is interested and who is just thinking about it. The meetup system counts people as "Inactive" if they haven't checked into the website at least once in three months. These are the people who then tend to get deleted. If this happens, please don't take it personally, members are always welcome to sign up again when they have the time or extra motivation too.

Run and Have Fun!

ps. Don't forget we have lots of extra information and social chat on Facebook

2021! Carry On - Social Distanced Easy Peasy Benjakitti Run

Benjakiti Park

COVID-19 UPDATE: 1July2020: It's been about 4 months now with COVID lockdown, and I'm sure you want to get your running shoes out, if you've been staying and working at home like me. Now's the time; I think we can run together, but physically a bit apart, to respect social distance and COVID safety precautions. So, I hope to see you next Tuesday. Let's see how we can adapt to keep running and still feel safe. See you at the parks! ==previous update==== Due to the restrictions by the Bangkok govt, the parks are closed until further notice. Please keep healthy and exercise by yourself for now. The Tuesday Easy Peasey's might have to turn into a virtual run-together. Let me brainstorm how... be well, and keep on staying fit! - Rangsarn Come enjoy a casual run to keep that cardio clean! Easy peasey means 3-4 loops around the park (1.8km per loop) at a pace of 7-9minutes/km..., veteran runners are always welcome to run at your own pace. We'll wait five minutes before starting the run at 6:35am. If you arrive after that, simply run in the opposite direction to meet us. There are drinking fountains along the running route, but if you don't want to risk it, bring your own water. The drink stand along the car park does sell drinks but their opening times are iffy. BY THE WAY: If you wake up and it's raining, the meetup is postponed. You know, it's that Thai monsoon rain thing..... Here's where we'll meet in the park. It's the north end of the park, near the car park and park entrance. We'll be on the running track.

Full Moon Bangkok Jungle Run - January 2021 (about 16km)

Sanphawut Pier

"Full Moon Bangkok Jungle Run - January 2020": This will be a medium run (about 16km max ... maybe). Meeting time is before 19H00 at the 7/11 just before the entrance of Wat Bangna Nok at the Sanphawut Pier. Just so we are all clear, it means, you need to be at the meeting point BEFORE 19H00. We will take the first ferry after 19h05 (4THB). Meeting point Location (at the 7/11): https://goo.gl/maps/K1UUfYQ1VdB2 (https://goo.gl/maps/K1UUfYQ1VdB2) To go there, go to BTS BANGNA STATION and Take a Moto TAXI (20THB). Don't come by car or Taxi, as this road can be jammed at this time, and you won't make it on time. Alternatively, you could run but with the traffic, it's not really nice. Just before the pier, about 100m, there is a 7/11. We meet there. Just in case, here is my number:[masked] (Line/WhatsApp) The pace will be slow but running pace, 7 to 8 min/km, I don't want to lose any runners ... it affects my ratings :-). • Distance: about 16 km ... and we will finish at Phra Pradaeng Pier (https://goo.gl/maps/1EgCwPDTP3L7As157) • Pace: Slow (from 06min/km to 07min/km) . You can run faster, but don't call me if you get lost! • Atmosphere: Social • We might have a dinner/drinks after the run. For those who sweat a lot like me, I suggest you take a t-shirt to change, as the humidity level can be high. Hope you will enjoy this run and see you there ... before 19h00 :-) Gonzague. You would need: • a headlamp or flashlight • water, as the shop will be closing :-) • not being scared of ghosts • a mobile phone ... just in case, we lose you! • a mask (COVID) Question: ???
