12th October 2014, Mad Hatter Hotel Charity run at Chaweng lake

Three big hotels on Koh Samui have come up with a nice variation on a run; the Mad Hatter run, to be held 12th October 2014 at Chaweng Lake at the dark hour of 5.40am. It's a charity run, more on this in a moment.
The three hotels in questions are W Retreat Koh Samui, Le Meridien Koh Samui Resort & Spa and Vana Belle.

12th October 2014, 5am, Chaweng Lake

The idea of the run is that all participants are encouraged to wear a fancy hat while in the race. Additionally, there's also a ‘Hat Contest’ after the race for the participants to win many prizes.

Funds raised through the Hotel Charity Run will go towards Wat Bhundarikaram School (Wat Pang Bua) for improving school infirmary, library and other important projects of the school.

The registration fee is THB 300 for an adult and THB 200 for a child (age up to 19 years old). As part of the registration package, participants will receive a participating kit which includes a lucky draw coupon, a food voucher, a marathon t-shirt, and a welcome bag package.

Interested participant can contact:
1. Khun Piyanut (W Retreat Koh Samui) at 077-915 999
2. Khun Narudee (Le Meridien Koh Samui Resort & Spa) at 077 960 888
3. Khun Kosita (Vana Belle, A Luxury Collection Resort, Koh Samui) at 077-915 555

Or you can apply in person, 11th October 2014, 09:00 hrs to 18:00 hrs at the entrance of Chaweng Lake Hall, opposite of Central Festival Samui.

12th October 2014, 5am, Chaweng Lake

The race is divided into three (3) categories as followed:
1) Fun Run – 2 km
2) Mini Marathon 5 km
3) Mini Marathon 10 km

In each category (except for 2 km Fun Run), it is also subdivided by genders and ages:
A) 12- 19 years old / Male and Female
B) 20 – 39 years old / Male and Female
C) 40 years old and over / Male and Female

I wonder what the route will be, it will not surprise me if the same route as the Samui's Midnight Run will be used, there are not that many options to easily split up a 5 and 10km race in downtwon Chaweng! I'm sure more news will follow.

I'm very happy to see a race being added to Samui's very thin racing calendar and even better to know that I will be on the island and able to participate! See you 12th October!
