IMH Full Moon Registration Extended thru 15 Aug 2017

There has been an overwhelming response to the opening of registration for the Mekong Indochina Full Moon Hash. Within hours of registration opening, the advertised limit of 100 was reached and in less than 24 hours the number reached over 150.

It does not seem reasonable to deny anyone entry to the event because they were a few minutes later to register than someone else. Hence, although the intention is to try and limit the size of the pack to make everything more manageable and enjoyable, registrations will be accepted for the next 7-days. Registration will now close at midnight on 13 August 2017. After that, you will be out of luck unless your powers of bribery are irresistible.

IMH 2017 Full Moon Hash Registration Opens

The traditional Mekong Full Moon Run will take place on Monday evening, 6 November 2017. This is a separate event from the main Mekong Hash weekend. Registration is now open and will be limited to the first 100 people to sign up. As is traditional, the Hash fee will be payable at the event. As yet, the fee is unknown because it will only be decided after BoBo has done all the legwork to set it all up and he knows how much he needs to charge to cover his expenses. If the past is any guide it should be around US $ 25 for the run and after party. This is undoubtedly the worst-kept secret in the must-attend Hash calendar.

Run for Children: Luang Prabang Half Marathon: Registration

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.
