The event is set to be even bigger and better than ever; a fun fitness and family oriented affair open for all ages. Following the huge success of 2017, the event is hoping to attract more than 4,500 runners.

There will be a 3km family run, 5km fun run, 10km mini-marathon, new 21km half-marathon and VIP run for all distances.

New this year is the 21km half-marathon. The race will start at 5:30am at the Phuket Gateway and head northwest along the Haad Sai Kaew Beach towards the Thao Thepkrasattri Bridge, past rural road No. 3006 and along to the Pi Lai Viewpoint area before looping back and returning to the iconic Sarasin Bridge before finishing where it started.

The entry fee is B400 per person for the 5km; B500 per person for mini-marathon; B650 per person for half-marathon; B1500 per person for VIP run for all distances (guaranteed trophy) and B1,500 per family (two adults and maximum two children aged under 12 years old) for 3km family run category.

The money raised will go towards to the Mai Khao Marine Turtle Foundation, which is committed to protecting the marine and coastal environment and ecosystems for the wellbeing of the sea turtles that nest in Mai Khao Beach and the surrounding areas.

Online registration is available from now until September 30 via https://www.phuketsoftevents.com/?page=turtleFunRun14 (Registration will close when 4,500 entrants have registered).
