Thailand Event Round-Up – April



with The Sponsorship Experts – Paul Poole (South East Asia) Co. Ltd.

The month of April is typically dominated by a slew of events related to Songkran, the Thai New Year, and this year is no different.

One of our favourites is the Singha Songkran Night Run, which returns to Chiang Mai on 13 April. The run, which takes place around Chiang Mai Zoo, is known for its relaxed atmosphere with participants being doused in water along the route. Participants can register for three distances, a Half Marathon (21km), a Mini Marathon (10km) and a Fun Run (5km).
