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.

“The Run of The Year” – You Don’t Want To Miss This One 

Start the New Year right with a classic virgin trail in a fast disappearing green area. This is near where Annacuntman did his run last year close to the wave park. This is 35km from Asoke so allow a little extra time to get there.


Mis-directions from Downtown:

Best is to look at the Google Maps link in and follow the directions:
https://goo.gl/maps/9HsPpv1cMrE2

If you are traveling from downtown, Google Maps currently gives an even lengthier version of the details below. Find your way to the Chalerm Maha Nakhon Expressway (Toll Road) and head across the Chaopraya on the bridge with the big Kasikorn Bank Bldg on your right. 


Once you get on Thanon Bang Bon 5 head north for 3.8km and turn right (across traffic) into the small parking lot. If you miss it, you will come to the large housing development The Elegance in about 70 meters past the restaurant, turn around and come back. The parking lot is small so leave space for Mrs. Piss and park on the main road if possible.
