Google Maps Coords:  13°45'25.4"N 100°22'55.9"E

“Creature from the Black Lagoon Run” 

Join us Sunday for a romp in the rapidly disappearing area near Phutta Monthon to celebrate someone’s birthday and it is not that of artist Piet Mondrian or Randy Meisner of Eagles fame.

Captain Eric Approved Misdirections:
Best is to put the Google Maps link in and click “Directions”:  https://goo.gl/maps/thbt4yyCCcuDKSRT8

Easiest way from Asoke is to get on the freeway out to the new “Grand Train Station” under construction and just past it veer left and take the new relatively unused tollway towards Kanchanaburi / Ratchapruek head west over the river all the way to the end. Turn left for 1.5 km following directions to Nakhon Pathom (#338) and do the clover leaf. After you come down to the main road, go 1km to Phutta Monthon Sai 2 and take a left.

Proceed for 3km and then take a right onto the connecting road to Phutta Monthon Sai 3 (as per photo below). Go 1.4 km down this road and take a left into a small parking lot next to a restaurant which we cannot use.

If you are coming from downtown you can also find your favorite way to the overhead elevated Borommaratchachonnani road (e,g, Rama VIII Bridge) and continue on the elevated road until it drops down to street level. Continue to Phutta Monthon Sai 2 Road and follow directions above.

MRT and Taxi: Alternatively if you would like to travel by taxi get in the Blue Line MRT and take it all the way to the end to Lak Song station get out and continue in direction you’ve arrived. Find a taxi to take you to Phutta Monthon Sai 2 and then follow link (should be no more than a 100 Baht taxi ride and is about 10km).

Post Run Restaurant
As the run start “restaurant” isn’t open because they have a funeral to go to, we will be bashing at a convenient place on the way back home. From the run start/finish, go 2km to Phutta Monthon Sai 3 and take a right turn, continue 375 meters and go over the khlong. After another 850 meters, stay to the left and don’t go over the next khlong and into the restaurant parking lot.

By Car
Find you own way to Phraek Sa Road. Go along Phreak Sa Road for about 3.6 km from the Sukhmuvit turnoff, and you will reach Phraek Sa Soi-8.

Run #517

Hare: Rawhide
Date: Sunday 24-November-2019
Time: 16:30 (4:30pm)
Krua Mai Narm (ครัวไม้น้ำ), Ramkhamhaeng Road, Min Buri 

By car: 
The shortest way is to go up Ramkhamhaeng Road almost all the way to the end.

From town, you can go out Rama IX Road to Ramkhamhaeng Road, or go out the Sirat Expressway (a.k.a. Rama IX Expressway) and exit at Ramkhamhaeng Road.

However, traffic on Ramkhamhaeng Road is heavy these days due to MRT construction, so you can also travel out Seri Thai Road, take a right on Route 3119 just after Min Buri Prison, turn left on Ramkhamhaeng Road, and go about 1km to find the restaurant on your left. If you come to end of Ramkhamhaeng Road at the T-junction with Route 304, you have gone too far, and the restaurant is back about 100 metres.

According to Google, the fastest route is via the Outer Ring Road, if you don’t mind paying the toll.

From the Bangkok-Chonburi Motorway, take the Outer Ring Road (Route 9) going north, pay the toll, and take the first exit for Ramkhamhaeng/Minburi, which brings you to Ramkamhaeng Road.

Turn right onto Ramkhamhaeng Road towards Min Buri, go about 8km, and turn left into the restaurant carpark.

If you are too cheap to pay the toll on the Outer Ring Road, you can take Rama IX Road or Rama IX Expressway out of town towards the airport (Bangkok-Chonburi Motorway), exit left onto the frontage road after Sri Nakarin Road, and follow the frontage road as it curves around to parallel the Outer Ring Road until you eventually reach Ramkhamhaeng Road. Turn right onto Ramkhamhaeng Road towards Min Buri, go about 8km, and turn left into the restaurant carpark.

Another toll-free option is to take the Bangkok-Chonburi Motorway to Rom Klao Road (Route 3119), and go up Rom Klao to Ramkhamhaeng Road, but this route is a little slower.

If you are not driving:
The fastest and cheapest way from town is to take the sewer rocket up the Klong Saen Saeb. Take the old boat to the current end at Wat Sriboonreung, then change to a smaller boat from Wat Sriboonrueng to the new end at Talat Min Buri. From Talat Minburi, take a taxi or motorcycle to the restaurant, which is only about a kilometer from there.

Note that if the new service to Min Buri is not operating for some inexplicable reason, you can still take the old boat to the end at W
at Sriboonreung, walk out to Ramkhamhaeng Road, and take a taxi to the restaurant.

Will be at Starbucks Exchange Tower departing 2pm sharp.
