Hills and Course Elevation (Please note 2nd half of marathon is quite hilly)
Section 1 – Starts at the lake and is generally downhill to the bike track. The bike track, around the 700 year stadium, to the turn around point and back to the beginning of Section 2 is relatively flat.
Section 2 & 4 – Starts at the bottom of the Huay Tung Tao’s Running Track and mostly goes uphill to the top of the track and then downhill back to the entrance of Section 3 & 5.
Section 3 & 5 – Starts at the bottom of road going up to the lake area, running around the lake with the inclusion of the dirt/off road area. There are a number of uphill and downhill sections around the lake. The dirt/off road section is the steepest hill going up to the turn around point then a welcome downhill on the back to the lake road.

Dirt/Off Road Section of the Course

Signage & KM Signs
The Asia Justice Marathon signs are purple. Please look out for and follow the purple arrow.
At each of the turning point, either turn L, turn R or turn around, we will have a volunteer to look out for the purple bibs and guide you in the correct direction.
A purple sign will be placed on each KM point. These points have been identified by using online tools such as Strava and MapMyRun. the Strava App course map is available here (click on this link)
Turn Around Points
There are 2 main turn around points
- The first is during Section 1. There will be a table staffed by volunteers to guide you. This is also a water, food and first aid collection point and a head lamp drop off point.
- The second is during Sections 3 & 4. This is on the dirt/off road section of the course. The turn around at each section is at the security gate at the top of the hill. There will be a table staffed by volunteers to guide you. This is also a water, food and first aid collection point.
Water, Food & First Aid on the Course
Water will be available approximately every 2km.
Food (bananas, gel packs & honey pack) and First Aid Stations will be available at the entrance to the Section 2 & 4; at the turn around point during section 1; and at the turn around points on the dirt/off road/track on Section 3 & 5.
The Asia Marathon Justice course has been designed for many different type of persons, including the professional or seasoned participants and others. A main goal of the design has been to be able to see and encourage each other. Throughout the course participants loop around different sections both inside and outside the park. On the 2nd loop of a section, participants will run/walk/wheel in the opposite direction to the first loop. It will be all sign posted and will have volunteers to show the way.
As you loop around you will be seeing and encouraging other runners/walkers/wheelers including those doing the 21K, 10K, 5K and 3K as you pass each other. It is a common and encouraged practice in the Trio 4 Justice for participants to High Five each other when they pass, to power punch signs of encouragement from the volunteers along the track and sometimes snap selfies with other participants.
Marathoners are amazing individuals who inspire others. We hope you both inspire others and atmosphere and enthusiasm on the day inspires you as well as we all run/walk/wheel to achieve greater access to justice.
