The “Major Care Mini Marathon 2018 Run with Care”, a charity walkrun event organised by Major Care Foundation in collaboration with Bangkok Metropolitan Administration, returns to town on September 30 and will kick off in front of the public library at Lumpini Park at 5am.



The aim, the organisers say, is to encourage the public to keep fit and for  family members to spend time together.

The event consists of two distances: a 10-kilometre mini marathon (Bt500 per entry) for which runners are categorised by age and a three-kilometre walk and run (Bt400).

Registers at www.MajorRunWithCare.com or in person at the Major Care Foundation on the M Floor of Major Cineplex Ratchayothin.

Proceeds will go to 10 schools in 10 provinces to fund scholarships and build classrooms. 

Just horsing around
