Back for its third edition, the King of the Mountain Trail Run will once again take runners thtough the adventurous and majestic Khao Phra Thaeo wildlife reserve.

As in previous editions, this year’s race and the third in the series, will see the course run through the adventurous and majestic Khao Phra Thaeo wildlife reserve and will feature three distances catering to beginners and experienced runners; the 4-kilometre fun run along with 8km and 15km trail runs with their steep and hilly terrain.

The lush jungle route provides an excellent backdrop to observe pure nature and beautiful waterfalls while runners test their endurance on rough paths and high climbs up the grand mountain.

Khao Phra Thaeo is known for its evergreen forest. Roughly 23 square kilometres in size, it was awarded royal status from King Bhumibol Adulyadej. The mountain’s highest point stands at 442 metres.

The first of the race edition was held in 2015 with 200 participants and has continued to grow with over 600 runners in its second year, which also saw the debut of the 15km course.

The trail run has cemented its reputation as one of the most popular events for experienced and amateur runners from all over the world.

The race starts at Thanyapura’s Gate 3, in front of the hotel at 7am. The runners begin their run along the road flanked by gorgeous trees for the first 2km before traversing through the Khao Phra Thaeo park, where they come across Tonsai Waterfall.

The winners of the men’s and women’s 15km courses will receive B5,000 each in prize money, a trophy and medal for their achievements. The top three male and female finishers of each distance will be awarded trophies while all race finishers walk away with a medal.
