Dubbed “Keng” (meaning “to excel”), the race will be Singha’s very first beach obstacle trail event and mark the beginning of Singha Obstacle Trail Series 2020.
The race will be set up amidst Laguna Phuket’s scenic tropical parkland by beautiful Bangtao Beach. Partially extending north to neighbouring areas, the race course weaves through beautiful lagoon, beach, dirt and road trails, strategically dotted by purpose-built obstacles to create a truly unique race experience.
“Phuket is one of the world’s top sports tourism hubs,” commented Paul Wilson, SAVP – Group Golf and Destination Sales & Marketing, Laguna Phuket.
“We are thrilled to add the Singha Obstacle Trail Run to Phuket’s sporting event calendar,” he added.
“The obstacle race layout will showcase the diverse natural environment throughout the destination of Laguna Phuket and runners will have a unique playground to test their limits. This exciting new race ideally compliments our world-renowned Laguna Phuket Marathon and Laguna Phuket Triathlon.”
The nationwide Singha Obstacle Trail Series also includes a “Krang” (tough) episode in Ratchaburi Province in September.
The series finale is “Kla” (brave), scheduled for December in Chiang Rai.
Each race comprises a 8km, 15km and 2km Fun Run in the solo category, and a 24km team race.
