The 14th Annual Run for Relief is a 5k run/walk and a 100-meter dash for kids. Our sponsors will be hosting booths and breakfast at the event so bring your friends and family for a morning of fun. Sponsors will also be handing out prizes to the top runners in each division (age, gender, etc.). There will also be a stroller division for parents with young children. You can also join the popular “flip-flop” division and honor the villagers who have to flee with only a pair of sandals on their feet.
Christians Concerned for Burma and Free Burma Rangers would love for you to join us in our vision, which is “To free the oppressed and to stand for human dignity, justice and reconciliation”. The following five ways listed below are how you can join us in our vision.
1: Run or Walk – Includes Free Run for Relief Race Top
If you live in or near Chiang Mai, Thailand, then join with us on Saturday the 10th of March 2018. You get a Free Run for Relief shirt + 100% of funds raised will go to help the Internally Displaced People in Burma. Payments are to be made on the day of the race in cash.
2: Run or Walk in Spirit – Includes Free Run for Relief Race Top
Regardless where you live in the world, we want you to join with us in spirit for the 14th Run for Relief to show that those who have the freedom to run have not forgotten those who have no choice but to run. 100% of funds raised will go to help the Internally Displaced People in Burma. All people that donate, we will post you a Free Run for Relief race top, so you can remember/pray for those that have no choice but to run.

In the dedication box where it says “I want my donation to be dedicated” enter the words “Run for Relief”
Note: If you are attending the race in person please note “Payments are to be made on the day of the race in cash”.
3: Business Sponsorship
We are reaching out to all businesses/organizations to partner with us and we encourage you to attend and spend time talking to the runners, aid organizations, and other sponsors during the event. This is a great opportunity to spread the word about your business/organization to all attendees and the marketing benefit you will receive is as follows.
- Business logo printed on the Official Race Tops (For 6000 baht sponsors)
- Business logo distributed via Facebook marketing
- Your business announced on race day
The following are some ideas on how you can support. You could donate prizes for the runners (gift certificates, products), cover the cost of particular expenses (water, stopwatches, etc.), donations in kind (cost of printing flyers, cost of printing shirts) or donate money via PayPal, Credit Card, Bank Transfer or Cash.
4: Monster Raffle
The Monster Raffle was a big highlight of the 13th Run for Relief in 2017 and will be even larger in 2018. The 14th Run for Relief will have a broad range of prizes up for grabs and we want you to come and join us for your chance to win some prizes. Even if you can’t run or walk, then we encourage you to turn up for support and to participate in the Monster Raffle. It will be great fun!
5: Donate Jackets and Coats
Warmth is something that many of us take for granted but for many displaced people around the world, something as simple as warmth evades them. It’s near the end of the Chiang Mai winter and we are encouraging all people to gather as many jackets/coats that are new or near new to donate. All jackets/coats are transported to Iraq and Burma when Christians Concerned for Burma and the Free Burma Rangers send relief teams in. Please bring all jackets/coats new or near new to the race day or contact us and we can arrange for them to be picked up. We are running a competition for Schools, Churches and organizations that raise the most jackets and will be handing out prizes on the day.
