The next Laguna Phuket International Marathon will take place in 9 June 2013. The event will again feature a Marathon, Half Marathon, 10.5K Run, 91.5FM Phuket 5K Community Walk and a 2K Kids Run.
The course is basically an out and back course with a loop for the last 10K. 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 2K 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 4,000 participants, with an average of 1,500 international participants from 50 countries.
