September 9, 2013 Destination Thailand No Comments Email Email

In its fifteenth consecutive year since 1999, Banyan Tree Bangkok is gearing up for one of the most exciting events “15th Vertical Marathon” on Sunday, 6 October 2013 from 6.00 a.m. – 12.00 p.m.

So dist off those running shoes and be sure to join us to race up 61 stories, to the finishing point at the award winning Vertigo Grill and Moon Bar, one of the highest al fresco restaurants in Asia.

Those who participate or come to support their friends will be contributing their part in Banyan Tree Bangkok’s long-term efforts to support HIV-positive mothers through the HIV Formula Feeding Fund organised by the Thai Red Cross under the patronage of Her Royal Highness Princess Soamsawali.

Timely Record

In 2012, the winners are two-time winners, Mr. Henrik Jannborg defended his title in 6 minutes and 45 seconds and Ms. Bridget Robertson defended her title in 7 minutes and 19 seconds in male and female categories.

The nominal registration fee of THB 350 nett per person includes the official marathon T-shirt and a meal box. Trophies from HRH Princess Soamsawali, luxurious accommodation and gift vouchers are also up for grabs for winners of all categories.

The Big Day

On Sunday, October 6th, the event will start at 6.00 a.m. in front of Banyan Tree Bangkok. Applicants will receive the official Vertical Marathon t-shirt and a meal box. The multi-national faces on that day will include professional and amateur runners, locals as well as international participants, who are eager to race the vertical course to the finishing point at Vertigo and Moon Bar, the renowned alfresco restaurant located on the 61st floor, once a helipad of Banyan Tree Bangkok. Runners will be divided into gender and age categories, and they may team up for couple and relay teams

In Aid of Charity

Proceeds from the event will be donated to the “HIV Formula Feeding Fund”, a Thai Red Cross initiative under the patronage of Her Royal Highness Princess Soamsawali. The fund assists vulnerable HIV patients, especially children, who require extra care and support.

Registration is available online from now until 30 September at or at Banyan Tree Bangkok’s Front Desk. Participants may also register at the event on October 6th from 6.00 a.m. to 7 a.m. at the main entrance of Banyan Tree Bangkok.
