Friendly, fun in the sun! The marathon course is postcard coastal Thailand.
Date: 7 June
Venue: Laguna Phuket
Friendly, fun in the sun! The marathon course is postcard coastal Thailand, and takes in a typical Thai village market, a rubber plantation, beach and sea views as well as stretches along buffalo plowed rice fields before finishing in the resort of Laguna Phuket in the North West of the tropical island paradise.
The next Laguna Phuket International Marathon will celebrate its 10th anniversary on Sunday 7 June 2015. The event will again feature a Marathon, Half Marathon, 10.5 km Run, 5km Community Walk, and a 2 km Kids Run.
The course is basically an out and back course with a loop for the last 10 km. Marathon and Half Marathon runners follow the course out of Laguna and then head north through local villages and rubber plantations. The course is very scenic and runners can appreciate the lush vegetation Phuket has to offer.
The event is a fun and family oriented affair with various races for all levels. The race course has water stations every 2 km providing water, sponges, electrolytes and fruits. Mobile toilets are placed at regular intervals and the course is marked at every kilometre.
From its humble beginnings with less than 2,000 participants the event has grown to a size of more than 5,000 participants representing Thailand and more than 50 countries around the world.
