The Amari Watergate & BMW Thailand Charity Midnight Run comes to Bangkok

As midnight approaches on Saturday 17th October 2015, thousands of athletes will be taking a deep breath and limbering up outside Amari Watergate Bangkok, preparing for Thailand’s largest charity midnight run. To be part of the excitement, pack the trainers and sweatbands now as Amari is offering a great package including accommodation, race entry and a soothing post-race massage from just £112 per night.

The 18th edition of the Amari Watergate & BMW Thailand Charity Midnight Run will see runners of all nationalities going head-to-head through Bangkok’s city centre streets competing for the coveted trophy, commemorative medals and prizes.

The Midnight Run started as a small race but today is now recognised as one of the most important events in the country’s calendar attracting over 7,000 runners each year, who can choose from two distances; 6km and 12km. From professionals to fun runners, visitors to locals, all competitors come together for this unique opportunity to see the buzzing metropolis in a new light whilst raising money for a number of local causes.

The race aims to raise 5,000,000 Thai Baht with all proceeds being donated to three life-changing charities; Chalerm Prakiat HRH Princess Sirindhorn School, Baan Gerda Children’s Project and Amari’s own charity, ‘Baht for a Better Life’ which aims to further the education of children in Thailand.

With the race starting and finishing at Amari Watergate Bangkok, a stay here means being right in the centre of the action whether spectating or competing. Visitors can combine a city break in one of the world’s most exciting destinations with this memorable event. Amari Watergate Bangkok is ideally situated in the heart of the city’s prime shopping district to pick up a few treats or some new running gear pre-run.

Perk up a tired post-run body with a revitalising signature mood massage at Amari’s own Breeze Spa, whilst chipped pedicures can be taken care of at the Breeze Salon. Just steps from the finishing line, runners can stumble to a welcoming bed in one of the hotel’s stylish and comfortable guest rooms, or for a real reward after the marathon achievement, check-in on the Executive floor which includes 24-hour butler service and a balcony offering amazing panoramic views of the city – also one of the best viewpoints for proud spectators!
