Participants were classified based on age across three categories: 30-39 years old, 40-49 years old and 50 years and over. All age classifications covered both male and female runners.
The race was planned by the Cherng Talay Subdistrict Administrative Organisation in cooperation with the Phuket Provincial Tourism and Sports Office as part of an ongoing project to help local communities still reeling from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and its detrimental impact on tourist numbers visiting the island.

The project is also focused on promoting the merits of good health of local citizens by encouraging more to exercise.
