This annual long-distance marathon, established by a group of foreign running enthusiasts back in 1982, returns to Kanchanaburi for its 35th anniversary. The River Kwai International Half Marathon 2016 offers participants three distances to run—35 k, 21.1 k, and 10.5 k—and the race kicks off at the River Kwai Village Hotel starting at 5:30am. Runners will be impressed by the beautiful scenery along the way, and challenged by the intricacies of the course. Finishers receive commemorative medals and category winners get trophies.
