South East Asia’s leading destination marathon, the award-winning event will take place at the Laguna Phuket resort complex on Bang Tao Beach on June 9-10.

The Laguna Phuket Marathon has been certified by AIMS (Association of International Marathons and Distance Races) for the 13th consecutive year and remains a qualifying event for the Boston Marathon. The event’s online registration partner is GoToRace.com and professional timing and results are provided by Sportstats Asia.

Now in its 13th year, the event was voted a “Top 10 Best Marathon” in Thailand by Wingnaidee for the second year running, and as the event continues to grow organisers expect to break 8,000 runners from more than 50 countries to “Run Paradise” this year.

Improvements have been made to the half marathon and marathon courses, and for the first time a new Marathon Team Relay has been introduced, whereby each team has to have four runners.
