Khon Kaen International Marathon in January of every year expects another successful and great event also urges Isan youths towards an international event

Runners all know ‘Khon Kaen International Marathon’, an important event held in the third week of January. Starting for the first time in 2004 Khon Kaen International Marathon has become one of Khon Kaen’s tradition. The running track standard has been certified by “AIMS”, the world’s running standard certifying institute. The Khon Kaen Marathon runner of the marathon category can show his/her record to apply at other world’s marathon events. Khon Kaen International Marathon also receives standard certification from IAAF.

Khon Kaen International Marathon is aimed at publicizing knowledge and understanding of health science and sports, to promote health, exercise and sports among youths, to make the youths aware of dangers of drug addiction, to campaign for prevention of types of addicted drugs, to develop management and technology of competition, and to develop Thai athletes towards international standards and Thai runners towards international Marathon while Khon Kaen itself becomes an Asean Marathon Majors.

The budget for Khon Kaen International Marathon is over 10 million THB. The first Khon Kaen Marathon (2004) until the 14th Marathon (2017) were organized with donation money, Khon Kaen University’s budget and incomes from application fees. In 2018, Khon Kaen Province was allocated an amount for the event, which partially contributed to the organization. The event is not aimed for income raising, and so the money has all been spent for the said objectives every time.

One activity that has continuously been implemented since the third event in 2006 is “Making the dream towards Khon Kaen International Marathon come true”. This project is under coordination with schools in Khon Kaen and the Northeast. The main objective is to inspire youths with the concept, “we can make our dream come true.” Young people are the target group that will be made to see the importance of health, of strong body, regular exercising and the danger of drugs and vices.

“Making the dream towards Khon Kaen International Marathon come true” project is carried out by arranging children who love running to run free of charge. Supports include accommodation, transportation, and application fee. A runner training center has been established in each school with budget allocated for each school to provide a trainer to train the children. There has been a road show to the schools in the Northeast to provide information about Marathon. The budget for this purpose is over 1 million THB each year.
