Marathons and fun runs are all the rage in Bangkok, and 2016 marks the first year ever that Thailand will send marathon runners to the Olympics. Earlier this year, Jane Vongvorachoti, 32, and Natthaya “Fon” Thanaronnawat, 37, booked their places at the Rio 2016 Olympics starting Aug 5. Before they jetted off, BK caught up with them to discuss life on the track.

How can the visually-impaired go out and exercise more? This simple question drove  Chatchai Aphibanpoonpon, 31, of toy company Klong Don Sor, to start a program pairing abled and visually-impaired runners. Run Together, on Mar 20, will be the biggest such run yet, with 360 blind runners expected. We spoke to Chatchai, and running partners Piriya Veeramanomai, 27, Suwit Intaranukulkit, 28, Nattaya Pariwat, 30, Sutham Pongsampao, 20, about what motivates them to run together. 

All the way from Singapore, Heritage Race arrives in Bangkok this Nov 29. And you could win B35,000.
