Run the island, 8th May 2016
RUN THE ISLAND OF KOH SAMUI
50 km - 4 Runners - 1 Challenge
This is a real great cause and a fantastic running event / challenge, set up by 4 local Samui runners. I wish I could participate as well, but unfortunately I will not be on Koh Samui come 8th May. Running 50km, following the ring road, is a real challenge, a distance I haven't run yet.
I wish the guys good luck however and I have already donated my 1,000.-THB and I hope many of my readers will follow suit!
On Sunday May 8th at 3 in the morning, we (Andrea, Denis, Laurent & Mike) will start off from
Anantara Resort Bophut to set the record for running around Koh Samui, well the ‘shorter’ 50km main loop.
To add some value to the run, we want to raise money for the Samui Special Needs Foundation,
which is currently building their new school premises.
You can donate 1,000 Baht (or more) for 1 km raising a minimum of 50,000 Baht for the school.
We will be escorted by a support vehicle & medical care as safety is our number 1 priority when running through the early hours & live updates will be made through the Samui Runners Club facebook page.
