A Prestigious Marathon Experience
The Bangkok governor, Chadchart Sittipunt, emphasized during a press conference that this marathon would be on par with the most prestigious marathons worldwide.

Official Endorsement and Tourism Boost
TAT governor Thapanee Kiatphaibool revealed that World Athletics, the sport’s international governing body, has officially endorsed the Amazing Thailand Marathon Bangkok. She also mentioned the TAT’s plan to use this event as an opportunity to attract more tourists, ultimately contributing to the country’s economic growth.
Thapanee noted that marathon participants tend to be health-conscious individuals who often travel with their families. To capitalize on this, the TAT plans to organize post-marathon activities, encouraging visitors to explore other parts of Thailand.
Exploring Thailand Beyond the Marathon
After the race, participants and their families can look forward to various activities organized by the TAT. These experiences will showcase the country’s diverse attractions, enticing visitors to extend their stay and explore the wonders of Thailand.
