This year, Thanyapura Sports & Leisure Club presents the 2nd annual one and only Phuket trail run in the majestic and adventurous Khao Phra Teao National Park with three different distances to choose from, including 4km, 8km, and 15km.
The route, alongside lush jungle, allows you to observe the beauty of pure nature while defying your endurance to get through the unpredictable rough path with steep climbs leading you to conquer the grand mountain.
Khao Phra Teao is one of Phuket’s national parks and mainly consists of an evergreen monsoon forest. Spanning over 23sqkm at the north end of the island, the park obtained a royal status from HM The King and therefore is very well preserved. The highest point of the mountain is at 442 metres.
The last edition of the trail attracted 200 people from amateurs to professionals, who enjoyed the challenging path in the surrounding vegetation. This year, the runners of the new distance, 15km, will have the opportunity to explore an untouched route where pure nature awaits.
Starting at 7am in front of Gate 3 of Thanyapura, the contestants will run along a road covered with big green trees for about 2km before getting to the area of Khao Phra Teao National Par. Trailers will then be offered a natural trail route.
Running from tree to tree, trailers will pass the beautiful Tonsai Waterfall where the cold crystal clear water will ease their tiredness.
At the finish line, for all distances, contestants will receive medals, while the first three male and female winners of all distances will be awarded a trophy. The 1st male and female winner of 15km distance will be awarded B5,000.
The registration fee is B450 for the 15km distance, B350 for 8km and B250 for 4km which will also include a King of the Mountain shirt. Register now until August 28 at www.thanyapura.com/events or at the Thanyapura Club Services. Give them a call today on 076-336 000!
