The Banyan Tree Bangkok has set the date for one of the most highly anticipated and unique charity events on the city’s competitive running event calendar.

 Now in its 19th year, the Vertical Marathon is a 61-floor race to the top of the Banyan Tree Bangkok, a 5-star hotel located on Sathorn Road.

 The annual event sees hundreds of runners of all ages and experience levels gathering at the break of dawn to dash up over 1,000 steps to the rooftop finishing line.
