AMARI MAKES IT FUN TO RUN
As midnight approaches in Bangkok on Saturday 21 January 2017 and many people are sitting in front of their television, thousands are putting on their trainers and lining up at Amari Watergate for a fun run around Bangkok's city centre streets. Residents and runners from all over the world will gather at Amari Watergate for a good cause. The event aims to raise 3 million Baht for charity. The run offers an opportunity for runners to compete for the coveted championship trophies and receive a commemorative medal as well as to share in the spirit of helping and giving.
MILLIONS AT MIDNIGHT!
Take part in this exhilarating charity midnight run with friends, family and colleagues. Runners can choose between the 6 km or 12 km route. This event is expected to raise millions to fund charitable activities. Mr. David Cumming, General Manager of Amari Watergate Bangkok commented, “We are very excited to be hosting the 19th Amari Watergate Charity Midnight Run this January 2017. It is so very inspiring to see people from all ages coming together for a number of great causes very much in need of our support.”
Participants of the 2015 run described it as a night of excitement made more special by a sense of togetherness, community spirit and achievement. What started as a small event with hundreds of participants has become a global running sensation, attracting over 5,500 runners from all over the world.
To raise more awareness for our campaign, we encourage participants to wear the running race t-shirts.
