The third annual YOMA Yangon International Marathon (YYIM) will take place on Sunday, January 11, 2015. This year's edition of Myanmar's largest and Yangon's only marathon event is expected to attract 4,000 runners. Aiming to inspire athletes and connect communities, both locally and internationally, YYIM 2015 will bring together runners, supporters, volunteers, corporates and the community through a mutual passion for running.

For this year’s edition of YYIM, 2 new categories- 10km challenge and a 3km Fun Run has been made available to cater to runners across all levels. Both the full marathon and half marathon categories remain similar to past years. Participants can expect to be treated to a visual feast as they weave their way through Yangon's unique blend of modern and rustic architecture, passing iconic sites including Botahtaung Pagoda, Shwedagon Pagoda and Inya Lake. A new philanthropic component will be introduced for YYIM 2015 whereby selected Charity Ambassadors will use the race as a platform to raise funds and awareness for the chosen charities. Although the charities have yet to be named, the common theme will be charities that support children in Myanmar.
