Press Release 2017: Run for Children: Luang Prabang Half Marathon

 

Registration is now open for the 5th annual Run for Children: Luang Prabang Half Marathon on October 22nd, Sunday. This unique, charity-focused race features a scenic loop course which participants can enter as a 7km, 14km, or 21km (half marathon) distance through the town’s historic UNESCO heritage area, passing golden temples while winding along the Mekong river. This year organizers will also be hosting several weekend activities including a charity pool party, Lao culinary journey, a photo exhibition and an outdoor concert.

 

The Luang Prabang Half Marathon was ranked by CNN as Asia's Top 5 Destination Races and we've also been featured in Vientiane Times newspaper, South China Morning Post as well as the international edition of Hash House Harriers magazine. With increased international flight access to Luang Prabang, the organizers expect to host 1,500 runners. Registration is available through www.luangprabanghalfmarathon.com

 

Run for Children: Luang PrabangHalf Marathon is organized by Lao Friends Hospital for Children (LFHC), which provides free healthcare to the children of Laos. LFCH is a full functioning pediatric hospital supported by Friends Without A Border. LFHC opened in 2015 and since then has treated over 30,000 children. With a newly opened Operating Theater and Neonatal Unit, the medical capacity has expanded drastically this past year. All funds from this race will help support LFHC to continue providing compassionate healthcare for Lao children. In 2016 the race raised over $53,000 for the hospital through registrations and crowd-funding donations.

 

Tigerhead Water has already confirmed to be the “Presenting Sponsor” for the race, with additional major sponsors such as Air Asia, Bangkok Airways, Lao Airlines and Booking.com. The organizers have also received tremendous support from local hotels and restaurants, making this one the largest community events in Luang Prabang.

 

Race information and regular updates can be found by liking the Facebook page, listed below. Entry fee will be refunded for runners that raise over USD $250 for the hospital through the Crowdrise site.

Ultimate adventure: last chance to register for Mongolia Sunrise to Sunset!

-          The untouched nature of Northern Mongolia is the setting for the 19th Mongolia Sunrise to Sunset (MS2S) 42km and 100km trail run from July 29th to August 5th 2017.

-          Registrations are open until end of June! Sign up on www.ms2s.org to experience the unique nomadic culture and run in one of the world’s most remote mountain areas.

 

Mongolia (5 June 2017) – Adventure seeking runners can still sign up for the ultimate Mongolia experience: The registration period for the 19th edition of the Mongolia Sunrise to Sunset (MS2S) closes on June 30th. The MS2S 42km and 100km ultra marathon will take place from July 29th to August 5th, 2017. The race location in Hovsgol National Park is stunningly beautiful: With the crystal-clear Lake Hovsgol, remote, marshy forests, windblown lowlands and craggy mountains, the MS2S is without a doubt one of the most beautiful runs on the planet.

The Mongolia Sunrise to Sunset is more than a marathon and ultra-marathon race: Participants from all over the world spend one week in the wild nature. They get in touch with the nomadic culture of the locals and learn about Mongolian traditions, beliefs, and way of life. On their quest to complete this spectacular race, runners pass by wild horses and yaks, seas of wildflowers, the craggy mountains and windblown lowlands. MS2S opens new perspectives.

All proceeds of the event are used to keep Hovsgol National Park pristine and clean as well as to support the culture of the local nomads via the “ecoLeap foundation”. “We want to keep this pristine mountain area as beautiful as it is now. That is why we fund a litter control project and its ongoing operation including hiring park rangers, providing eco-friendly garbage bags and raising awareness nation-wide through TV ads and education of local children and families”, explains race director Nicolas Musy.

Beautiful & challenging

The race is not only beautiful but also challenging: The accumulated elevation gain/loss in the marathon distance is more than 2.200 meters, in the 100km ultra run it is more than 3.300 meters. Still, everybody with a strong spirit and good training can complete the race. The cut-off time is 18 hours.

Full-Ship Charter Cruise Enters Bid for InterAmerica’s Hash 2019

Mobile, AL May 8, 2017 – The first official bid to host the InterAmerica’s hash event was officially posted by way of Facebook on Friday, May 5th. A committee made up of Scotch H3, Babe’s Hash Cruise, and the Nassau Hash House Harriers is promoting a full-ship charter that would take hashers from a Florida port to Nassau, Bahamas for two days of trails and then spend a day at a private island in the Caribbean.

John “Babe Thruster” Richards, who has been organizing hash cruises since 1995, is heading up the project. “We want to offer something new for InterAm” Babe said, “When you buy out the entire ship, you get to make some of your own rules. In this case, we want to make an open bar beverage program available to everyone so that hashers can choose beer, wine or liquor drinks for the entire duration of the cruise. We also plan to offer a clothing optional pool and a private island experience also with open bar.” Although the ship and sail date have not been selected yet, most passenger cruise ships hold around 2,200 passengers and up. “We need to select and ship and cruise company that will fit with our program.” said Babe, “To do that, we need to get an idea of what the demand will be from the hashing community.” One way to measure that demand will be with the project’s pledge program. On June 9th (6/9) from 6:00 – 9:00 pm CST, a booking window will open up to allow hashers to book the cruise before it even goes to bid. While the group hopes to win the bid this October in Phoenix, they have made it clear that the cruise will go forward even if they don’t get the bid.

The group is also making efforts to be more inclusive with the event. “In the past, the InterAm event has sold out so quickly that many hashers in Asia, Australia and Europe haven’t had the chance to sign up.” said Babe, “We wanted to get an early start so that they get a fair chance to join us. We can adjust the size of the ship so that we can get as many hashers onboard as possible”.
