This annual race will take runners through Phuket’s beautiful lush settings and back roads on the island’s northern point, and is inspired by track and field’s earliest days in ancient Greece, when Olympians measured contested races in feet and miles.

This method gave runners a chance to achieve a personal best over another distance.

This challenging race is open to runners of all ages and will feature four running distances and categories:

· The signature 10 mile run includes five age categories starting from age 15

· The 5 mile run is open to participants aged 12 and older

· The 2 mile open run for runners of all ages

· 500 metre fun run for young runners up to 12 years old

The day’s first competitors will kick-off the run at 6am and the award ceremony is set for 7:30am.

Competitors of the 5 and 10 mile races will receive a race kit which includes a T-shirt and BiB number, and a commemorative medal at the end of the ceremony. The top three finishers of the 10 and 5 mile categories will be awarded a trophy.

· B450 for 2 mile run (B400 for teams)
