Yangon to host international marathon

Myanmar’s international profile in sports continues to rise as Yangon plays host to the country’s first international marathon in decades in January 2013.

Yoma Strategic Holdings confirmed sponsoring the event at an official launch at FMI Centre on July 25.

About 1,000 participants, both locals and foreigners, are expected to race over three distances; a 42km marathon, a 10km run and a 3km run.

The races will begin and end at People’s Park, taking in Yangon’s most iconic landmark, the Shwedagon Pagoda.

The YOMA Yangon International Marathon will be a charity event with all proceeds from race entries donated to various charitable projects in Myanmar.

The marathon will be held on January 27, 2013 with race fees ranging between US$22 – US$42. Registration can be made via the official event website: http://www.yangonmarathon.com.
