Motivated by fitness, health, and the enjoyment of a morning calm, a mix of pro and amateur runners recently got together to share their love for the activity and are encouraging those who happen to be in Yangon join them. Started by a group of Thai expats, the group meets at 6am near Kandawgyi Lake. As a bonus, Yangon’s many angles get discovered in the early morning hours while roads are s ll quiet with a wonderfully agreeable weather. The 10km route takes the group downtown and over the Pansodan bridge with the beautiful Yangon Central railway station within view. More historical and iconic British Colonial buildings mark the route, with many of them still in use. This running tour also goes past a local wet market and the large People’s Park near Shwedagon Pagoda, followed by breakfast.
