Participants at a Chonburi charity marathon on Saturday were aghast when the organizers ran out of water.

 

An announcement was made after five kilometers that there was no more water to drink.

 

Participants were told to look after themselves. 

 

Pictures showed runners cupping their hands to get a drink as there were no cups either.

 

Musician "Toffy Sambathhasip" led the chorus of complaints saying:

 

"Why am I risking my life for this?" 

 

Many people followed the story seeing the funny side of the Charity Chonburi Marothon 2018.

Hospital chief says sorry to Chon Buri charity runners over water shortage

The Burapha University Hospital director Dr Suriya Prongnamjai on Monday apologised for failing to provide sufficient bottles of drinking water to runners in a charity marathon in Chon Buri on Sunday.

 

Suriya admitted that organisers had made a mistake.

 

He said the event was overwhelmed by the unexpectedly large turnout of kind-hearted runners, he said, and did not have enough bottles of water to hand out.

 

The incident would be studied in search of a solution to prevent it from happening again, Suriya said.

 

The Charity Chon Buri Marathon 2018 was to raise funds to buy medical supplies and equipment for the hospital, whose service covers nine eastern provinces.

 

Photos posted to social media showed dehydrated runners resorting to using the palms of their hands as makeshift cups as staff members poured water from jugs.

 

The posts drew much criticism centred on the lack of preparation and good management by event organisers.

I bet they won't need to form a committee and take months to come to a decision, like the government does though.

 

btw, the solution is very clear - it's more H2O.

Did they not have a list or register of entrants upon which to base the likely amount needed .. And he's a Doctor .!

A cynic might think they were hoping to cash in on the flakers! 😐

what is there to study!

There is no rocket-science in using the calculator app and making a phone call to order more water
