The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), Singha Corporation and Bangkok Airways are joining hands to stage the ‘Singha-Bangkok Airways Road Classic 2018’ in Chiang Rai on 11 November.
The annual event this year celebrates its fourth anniversary, since it was first held to promote the northern Thailand city as a bicycling destination.
For runners and spectators alike the day presents a wonderful opportunity to see Chiang Rai city from a different perspective. Just as the TAT’s Amazing Thailand’s ‘Open to the New Shades’ communication concept encourages, runners in particular will be able to take in the different views as they make their way along the race route.
Full details of the event are yet to be announced, but the various race routes can be seen now at the Singha Bangkok Airways Road Classic Facebook page.
The ‘Singha-Bangkok Airways Road Classic 2018’ will feature five race distances, all of which start and finish at Singha Park Chiang Rai. These are a 40 km race with a time limit of two hours, 60 km race with a time limit of three hours, 100 km race with a time limit of four and a half hours, 150 km race with a time limit of six hours and 180 km race with a time limit of seven hours. All types of bicycle can be used.
Early bird registration will be open from 1-31 July at the special price of 500 Baht, which includes a bib number, race kit, lunch coupon, accident insurance, water power drink, finisher medal and jersey (race suit).
Regular registration will be from 1 August to 30 September at the normal price of 650 Baht, with the same items included.
