“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.
