How To Get There:

From the North:
Take the Sri Rat Expressway (ทางพิเศษศรีรัช) north towards Chaeng Wattana.
After the B10 toll plaza take the first Ngam Wong Wan exit (exit 2-09) and turn left towards Khae Rai (เเคราย).
Fight your way into the right lanes and go over Khae Rai flyover into Rattana Tibet Road (ถนนรัตนาธิเบศร์).
Continue for 6.5km and then cross the Pra Nang Klao ("Hash") Bridge (สะพานพระน้งเกล้า).
After the next flyover get in the frontage road and filter left into Ratchapreuk Road (ถนนราชพฦกษ์) south towards Nakon In Road.
After 4km on Ratchapreuk you will go under the Bang Kruai-Sai Noi road.
About 400m further on keep left and take the U-turn road.
At 600 meters (HHH) pull into the dirt car park on your right, directly beneath Ratchapreuk Rd. Do not continue to make the U-turn under the bridge!

From the South:
Proceed north on Ratchapreuk Rd until the massive round-about and underpass at the junction with Nakron In Road. Zero odometer. Continue north on Ratchapreuk taking the underpass, over the khlong bridge, under the Bang Kruay-Sai Noi Road and U-turn at 3.50km, the first opportunity. Return south and when you pass under the Bang Kruay-Sai Noi road again, zero your odometer and get in the left lane. Slow down and at 700 meters take the frontage road exit for the U-turn under the khlong bridge. At 900 meters (HHH) pull into the large, gravel TaKeing Keing Naam car park(sign in Thai) on your left. Do not continue to make the U-turn under the bridge!

Going west from Nonthaburi towards Ratchapreuk Rd, zero odometer at foot of bridge and get into slip road either immediately or at 1.70km, to exit off Nakron In Road. Turn right under flyover on to Bang Kruay – Sai Noi Road. You will see signs for Wat Prasert. Proceed approx. 4km passing Wat Prasert on your left but as you approach the bridge over Ratchapreuk Rd stay left and exit onto Ratchapreuk road. Slow down and at 400 meters take the frontage road exit for the U-turn under the khlong bridge. At 600 meters (HHH) pull into the dirt car park on your right, directly beneath Ratchapreuk Rd.

Bruised Willy will not disappoint.  It has been too long since we've been treated to one of his classics.  This will be a great run and likely mostly virgin terrain on dirt trails, miss it at your own peril.

Van Transport from Lumpini

There will be a van arranged leaving promptly from the Lumpini Park Statue at 3pm share.  This will be heavily subsidized if not paid for but you need to let Roger Me know via email at:  kmeyertw@gmail.com or by phone :  0847-035-900 by latest Wednesday night if you would like to reserve a seat on the party van.  

Again RSVP by latest Wednesday night if you'd like a seat in the van.



DRIVING DIRECTIONS:

Traffic is often heavy on weekends on Borom and there's construction on Sala Thammasop Road, which is the usual shortcut, so leave a little extra time and I would recommend against Sala Thammasop Road as a back way on the weekend (unless they finally finished construction this week or next - ask Jeff Gay about that).

1) Zero your odometer and click the Google Maps Link.
2) When the restaurant loads on the Google Maps Link look for the Directions button, which is in blue below:
3) Click "Directions" on the Google Maps Link and select your form of transport.
4) Do what it says. 




ALTERNATE DRIVING DIRECTIONS:

1) Download Waze for your phone.
2) Click the Waze Directions Link.
3) Click go and do what it says.



ALTERNATE ALTERNATE DRIVING DIRECTIONS:

Hare: Major Hornblower

Start Time: 16:30
Run site: Wat Kalong, Bang Bo. (out past Suvarnbhumi)

Google Maps: https://goo.gl/maps/iETauFPAXnn

Simplest route would be BTS to Bang Na station and taxi from there. Follow the directions below.

Come and experience good running tracks, a jungle section and some serious shiggy out in Watkalong in Bang Bo. Enjoy a run through the countryside with virtually no concrete on the route and well-deserved drink stop. Come and experience something just a little bit different. Hopefully no TV crews this year.

Mis-Directions

Take the Pattaya-Chon Buri Expressway and leave at exit 26 to BANG SAOTHONG – BANG BO.

Stay on the frontage road pass the Royal Place sign/tower over the Klong bridge, past the ISUZU garage and PTT gas station and take the next immediate left after the PTT station. (see the photo below)

Continue for just over 4km and just before you get to Pine Pacific Manufacturing facility on your left, you’ll see a big parking lot looking concrete space on your right. There will be a HHH sign.

You need to turn right but then proceed 680 meters down to the end where the piss truck will be.
