Thailand plans series of world class cross-country running events

Recommended Posts

They already have cross country races here. Many through out the year staged in different areas. I ran a great one last November in Chiang Rai. What is this guy talking about?

Officials are working on the design of the routes, in order to offer participants with the most interesting and varied terrain, from forest trails to mountain passes, which are already of interest to the younger, environmentally aware generation.

yes and Thailand is adding the AQI PM 500 to the route design. And no masks allowed. Athletes from all over the world will be flocking to this new challenge in Thailand.

I remember being in CM smoky season once there was some kind of running marathon outside in March. They really think it is fun?

Short of news so they beat up something that already exists.  Not really newsworthy anyway - Cross-country running is a huge sport with venues common worldwide.

 

Sort of like the roman "bread and circuses " thing done by the Greek politicians - keep the peasants minds off the real problems - Next will be the Marie Antoinette response when the4 French populace - so starved - ran out of bread.  Her answer? - "give them cake"

 

That cost her her head.

If they cross a boundary into a different province I presume they will need to stop and visit immigration to have their new TM30 registered. 

 

Or will they be arrested for working, or not haveing the correct “go for a run” visa or otherwise just abused, branded as a criminal, perhaps sent to the detention centre to await deportation?

 

Thailand, you have abused your visitors for too long, nobody will want to run in your idiotically run country. There is a pay back at some point for your xenophobia, racism, greed, dishonesty, small mindedness, nastiness, abuse and arrogance.

 

Screw your cross country run.
