Coming From Khlong Toey Nok Ferry Pier, Rama III Ferry Pier (next to Bangkok Bank HQ) or Wat Bang Na Ferry Pier

Take mototaxi, tell them you want to go to Baan Khun Nayok near Petchahung Soi 26.

If they stare at you funny, tell them "Petchahung Soi 26" and keep an eye out for the hash sign a bit before Soi 26.

If that doesn't work, just say, "Wat Kong Kaew" (about 1km from the run site) and then make sure they stay on Petchahung until you see the sign and soi 26

If his doesn't work, just start drinking
