Bagan Temple Marathon: Travel to Myanmar and run through the UNESCO World Heritage of Bagan

The Bagan Temple Marathon 2020 has been canceled. See you in 2021!

This marathon will take you on a voyage of discovery into this alluring land where sacred pagodas are scattered across the plains, creating a mystical, stunning landscape. Dating back one thousand years, the course will take runners through these beautiful places of worship showcasing the glorious era of 11th-century kings and Bagan’s beauty and historical significance.

Admire the beautiful temples of Bagan and be distracted from the scorching heat and sandy route. The area’s small villages exude an aura of yesteryear and you will get a sense of what life was like long ago as you run through these traditional settlements.

Where is the Bagan Temple Marathon?

Tucked away in central Myanmar is Bagan, the country’s ancient capital.  Sitting on the banks of the Ayeyarwaddy River, the site of Bagan is home to more than 2,000 Buddhist temples and has been registered as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Race Distances

Three competitive distances are available at this event: full and half marathon and a 10km run.

Routes and Conditions

The race starts and finishes at Htilominlo Temple. The temple was built in 1211 and is famous for its plaster carvings. The route is the same for all runners up to kilometer 8 where the half marathon and full marathon runners break off. At kilometer 13 the full marathoners continue on their own through the breathtaking scenery of Bagan.

Overall the route is quite flat and a mix of trails and roads, although predominantly dirt tracks.

Bagan Tour Package

Entry is part of a multi-day tour package, giving you the perfect opportunity to run and experience this unique destination. Extensions can be added to your itinerary, providing you greater access to this wonderful land.

Where to stay in Bagan 

Myanmar has a lot to offer. Make a trip out of your race and stay longer in Bagan before you travel to the magical Inle Lake, Yangon or Mandalay.
