We have never written any review before but this time we thought it is necessary. We r a group of 5 just returned from the event. At first we were wondering why the numbers are so small. After the run, we know why. By far it is the worst and least interesting marathon event in Thailand. And we have been running in Thailand for the past 10 years. 1st the organiser cant get the singlet size right and refused to let us change. They are unisex size. M size mean woman's M size. If u r male, too bad. The English speaking volunteers are rude and treated us like a troublemaket. The marshal or policemen stopped a group of runners to give way to traffic. Finishing line is the worst, no cheering crowd, no direction as what and where to collect medals, food and drinks. When we found where the drinks were, there was a long queue. Luckily there was a 7-11 nearby. We chose to buy our drink instead of getting drink from organiser. We were given food coupon but no food to be seen in vicinity. We are talking about the registration fees of 3000bath. By far most expensive and worst in Thailand. So much unlike Thai.
