Laguna Phuket is the setting for high-profile events that draw both international participants and global attention to its tropical beauty. The resort and its surroundings play host to a series of events throughout the year, from endurance sports contests to relaxing family entertainment. These include the long-standing Laguna Phuket Triathlon - now joined by the Challenge Laguna Phuket to make a triathlon double-bill - the popular Laguna Phuket International Marathon, and the Summer Family Festival. Laguna Phuket, with its location and variety of accommodation, hospitality and leisure choices, has proved to be the ideal host of all these events.
The date for the 2013 Laguna Phuket International Marathon is Sunday 9 June 2013. The event will again feature a Marathon, Half Marathon, 10 Km Run, 91.5FM Phuket 5K Community Walk and a 2 Km Kids Run.
