Chiang Mai half marathon 2011& 2012 (about: 2012)|
T. W. from Chiang Mai , Thailand (12/24/12)
6-10 previous marathons
| 2 Chiang Mai Marathons
The course is very flat and split between running in the city around the old city moat , then out on to the motorway for about 10-12 km , then back in to the city again , where it finishes where it began at Thapae Gate.
Not a great deal of support , but that is to be expected as the race is run at 05:00 in the morning.
Main bugbear for me was that on both occasions that I have ran this race , the distance has been 22.50km and not 21.1km as stated , so any thoughts of doing a PB here are slim to none.
I mentioned to the race organizers the distance discrepancy last year , the night before this Years race and was assured that it had been rectified for this Years event , but it wasn't , so was not best pleased, to say the least after the effort made to get a good time
