The National Jogging Association of Thailand (NJAT) has just been informed by the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration that Utthayan Road (which was announced as a new race venue for BDMS Bangkok Marathon 2016 on Sunday, February 5, 2017) will be under construction and the contractor will still be onsite during the race date. The organizing committee is concerned about the defects on the construction caused by the race and especially more concerned about the safety of the runners. Therefore, the organizing committee has come to a decision to change a race venue from Utthayan Road to Phitsanulok Road. To be more specific, the start and finish line of all race categories will be at the Suan Mitsakawan Intersection on Ratchadamnoen Nok Road. (Please see the maps.)
