Embark on a voyage of discovery into this alluring and untouched land.
Tucked away in central Myanmar and home to more than 2,000 temples, Bagan’s beauty and historical significance is unsurpassed.
Annually in November
The Bagan Temple Marathon features three competitive distances: full marathon, half marathon and 10k race. The relatively flat route takes runners through a temple wonderland and small villages where it feels like time has stood still. Sacred pagodas and beautiful temples are scattered across the plains, creating a mystical, striking landscape.
Conditions in November are typically hot and humid with temperatures reaching 30°C/86°F. The heat and dusty terrain is a challenge for most runners, but the beautiful temples, friendly villagers and the location’s otherworldly atmosphere make this marathon a true gem.
Entry in The Bagan Temple Marathon is part of a multi-day tour package, including the ideal balance of culture and adventure. Participants, together with family, friends and other running-minded spirits, will enjoy an unforgettable tour in the cultural hub of Yangon and the mystical plains of Bagan. This is an epic voyage through Myanmar. Extensions are available, allowing you to explore further afar in this beautiful country.
