Thai bourse's charity mini marathon "SET Bull Run" successfully attracts over 3,300 runners
BANGKOK, January 29, 2016 - The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) joined hands with both private and public entities in financial market to organize "SET Bull Run" charity mini marathon, the first time ever for the Thai capital market, on Ratchadapisek road in the rim of downtown Bangkok, on Sunday February 28, 2016.
This marathon attracted more than 3,300 runners from capital market professionals, investors, as well as professional and amateur runners, and the general public, raising THB 1.5 million for the Thai Red Cross Society.
SET President Kesara Manchusree said that what we have gained far more than the charitable contribution. The initiative could also synergize capital market collaboration by SET and other capital market organizations namely the Federation of Thai Capital Market Organizations (FETCO), Thai Listed Companies Association (TLCA), Association of Thai Securities Companies (ASCO), the Association of Investment Management Companies (AIMC), and mai Listed Companies Association (maiA). A record number of more than 3,300 runners submitted the application in only one week after the launch announcement.
"This marathon has been organized under the 'Power of the Bull' concept, represented by the bull symbol which signifies the power, energy and strength of the capital market. It was done for a good cause. Not only to enhance healthy lifestyle of the Thai people and residents, the amount of THB 1.5 million from the application fee, in full, not minus expense, has been donated to the Thai Red Cross Society. This activity became a key flagship of the capital market to be organized continuously," added Kesara.
Bangkok Metropolitan Administration, Metropolitan Police Bureau, neighboring communities as well as various other organizations were instrumental in making SET Bull Run a great success.
The marathon started and finished at the SET's building on Ratchadapisek road.
There were two distances for runners: 10.3 km. (mini marathon) and 3.2 km. (fun run). The mini marathon consisted of four groups named by the name of previous SET buildings' locations: Ratchadapisek, Klongtoey, Sinthorn and Siam.
Furthermore, there were awards and prize money for top overall male & female in the mini marathon, top five male and female in youth and general public categories in the fun run, as well as top five male and female in each group.

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index .VNI advanced 0.39 percent at the close on Tuesday, dragged higher by energy stocks in robust trade amid upbeat global oil prices.
