Testimonial from the Bagan Temple Marathon

"This place is completely surreal! It was an amazing experience running past hundreds of temples and pagodas. But mostly it was the people we loved - villages came out and lined the streets playing music and cheering for us. We were given flowers from little girls and lots of high fives. I had a wee dance with the locals at one village. All the farmers were out tending to their fields, moving stock alongside the track."
