The Ibis Koh Samui Trophy, 15th September, 2012

This challenge is held for the 4th time on Koh Samui and this one day race involves biking, running, kayaking and swimming. A real challenge indeed! It will be held in and around Bophud.

Back in 2012 one of my first race runs was a 5km run as part of the challenge. Unfortunately for me, the runs are no longer part of this event, it's now purely concentrating on the main event. I prefer straight running, so this event will see me as a spectator, providing I'm even on the island come 15th September.

Adventure Racing is a new sport that has exploded in popularity across Asia.
AMA (the organizing company) is leading that growth in Thailand with its highly popular Amazing Thailand Adventure Race Series supported by the Tourism Authority of Thailand. Now in its 4th year of operation, AMA has established an international reputation for its professionally organized events, solid logistics and challenging courses.

If this is your cup of tea, you can sign up on AMA's website or in person at Bike Zone in Amarin Plaza Bangkok (good for a 10% discount!)
