Cancer Care Charity Fun Run, Nathon, 1st June

Cancer Care Charity Fun Run

In a weeks time from today, it will already be all over, this years version of the Cancer Care Charity Fun Run.
Since we're getting really close to the event, it's time to post a reminder about this Charity Fun Run, which by now is held for the 6th time on Koh Samui, organized by the Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui.

Since 1981, Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts worldwide, led by the founder and chairman, Mr. Isadore Sharp, has been holding an annual charity event for cancer research and the company has raised more than 400 million USD in total, until now. In Thailand these runs have been organized since 17 years and so far raised around 33 million Thai Baht, all of which were retained for cancer research use in Thailand.

These Cancer Care events are all inspired and started by The Terry Fox run, the original Marathon of Hope in Canada in 1980.

This years event will be at the Nathon pier and registration is at 6am, race start time will be at 7am. Registration packages with either a t-shirt for 250.-THB or a polo shirt for 400.-THB can be picked up at the reception of the Four Seasons if you don't want to wait until Saturday. 
The distance you can participate in is a 2.5 and 10km walk or run and the overall winner will be awarded 'Her Majesty the Queen's Cup'.
Tickets include a breakfast box and in addition, a lucky draw will be held for all participants who complete the event but you must be present during the draw!

You don't need to be an athlete to join this event, just show up and walk or run either distance that you fancy.
Although I'm injured at the moment, due to an Achilles tendon problem, which caused me to cancel a 13km tomorrow in Hat Yai, I hope to be ready to run this coming Saturday my third successive Cancer Care run in Nathon.

Please help the cancer care in Thailand an show and buy a ticket and enjoy the race and the atmosphere! Maybe you get lucky and win one of the fab prices in the lucky draw!
