Siam Piwat invites everyone to run for good health while contributing to more green spaces in Bangkok by joining the Siam Piwat Run Forest Run until Nov 12.

Held in collaboration with the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) and Virgin Active to promote environmental consciousness, the running challenge encourages people to accumulate distance on the urban running track located on the ground floor of Siam Center, Rama I Road.
Alternatively, they can choose to take part in a virtual run and accumulate distance from any location of their choice — home, sports stadiums, parks or treadmills.
After the run, they can simply send their results through the Thaifit online platform. Every kilometre they cover will be converted into one tree to be donated to support the “1 Million Trees Planting Project” by the BMA.
Exclusively for Onesiam SuperApp users who participate in the challenge, you can simply open the app to double the accumulated running distance. This means you can effectively contribute to doubling the number of trees to enhance greenery in the city. The first 150 users who accumulate 5km will also receive a Starbucks gift voucher worth 100 baht.
All participants will also have the opportunity to receive numerous special privileges and prizes from various partners including monthly fitness memberships with souvenirs from Virgin Active, sports shoes and assorted benefits from Puma and Saucony, as well as products from Canon.
Those taking part in the activity by accumulating distance on the treadmills at Siam Center will be rewarded with a set of plants and organic fertiliser made from coffee. Additionally, they will be eligible to participate in exclusive prize giveaways.
Registrations should be made via thai.fit/c/RFR2023by Nov 12.
