The Yoma Yangon International Marathon

Taking place on 19 January next year, the second edition of the Yoma Yangon International Marathon will take runners through the beautiful streets of Yangon city, weaving through both modern and rustic Myanmar. This will be a visual delight for runners – definitely an experience to remember.

3,000 participants are expected to take part in this event and many spectators will line the streets to cheer on the runners and give moral support. You will definitely experience the full hospitality of the locals throughout your run.

For those who are taking part in this major event, this will definitely be a race experience like no other. Whether it is your first or 20th marathon, you will certainly bring home nostalgic memories of the Yoma Yangon International Marathon.

Race Categories

There are three race categories, the:

  • 42km Marathon
  • 21km Challenge
  • 5km Fun Run/Walk

The Half Marathon (21km) is a new category for distance runners who want to give themselves a challenge and push their limits, but at the same time, are not keen to take on the full marathon.

Prices range from USD30 for the 5km Fun Run to USD55 for the 42km Full Marathon.

Aims To Inspire Athletes

With the support of two of Myanmar’s largest companies, the First Myanmar Investment and Yoma Strategic Holdings, the main aims of this race are to inspire athletes and connect the local and international communities through a mutual love for running.

Said U Theim Wai, the Chairman of Yoma who also took part in last year’s 3km race, “We take pride in organising a national sporting event that will inspire athletes, young and old and connect communities, both local and international. It is an opportunity… to get together and enjoy the carnival atmosphere.”
