Marathons and mini-marathons have become quite popular in Thailand, and this year there’s one that promises to give sight to the blind, hearing to the deaf and movement to the disabled.

The Third Eye System, Ear Tip Solution and Smart Leg Technology mobile phone apps are being promoted via the Facebook pages of Run 2gether Mini-Marathon (LINE ID @runto?gether) and Khon Thai Foundation.

The organisers have posted a video clip demonstrating how it works. It shows how a person with visual disability needs to merely press a button on his mobile phone and say “Hi Meng, bring me to run.”

This request is then passed on to volunteers who can help guide their disabled fellow runners on the 10, 5 and 2.5-kilometre range of the mini-marathon.

These guides can lead the blind down the track, warn the deaf of any accidents they may face, run hand-in-hand with friends with prosthetic legs or push wheelchairs.
