4th Samui cross country event, 20th May 2018

4th Samui cross country event, 20th May 2018


The 4th Samui cross country event, 20th May 2018 is in the making. Check your agenda and mark the Sunday 20th may. Once more the event will take place and is settling itslef on the yearly event agenda for Koh Samui.
Last year I was not on Koh Samui when the 3rd edition took place and there was some running involved as well. If you follow my blog regularly, you may know that running specifically peeks my interest.
At this moment I don't know yet if I will be on Koh Samui come 20th May, but if I am, I will be definitely looking into running a distance.
The running distances will be 2.5km, 5km and 10km. They will be tough, trail and in the heat when the sun is out!

The main event however will be for the mountain bikers. Mountain biking and road racing for bicycles are even more popular compared to running in Thailand. 
Each year has seen large amounts of participants in the biking event and it seems it's popularity is only growing.

What I find very challenging is that the races are being held throughout the day. In contrast to running, where most races start early to actually avoid the heat, these mountain bike races can not be held in the dark. Racing with mountain bikes in the dark is too dangerous, hence they have to compete in the heat during the day time.

It's going to be a great day, if you're on Koh Samui, sign up and participate. Once more information is available in English, I will try to update this blog.

Please do 'like' my Koh Samui blog Facebook page and enjoy the beaches around the island or in front of your hotel or resort and get some well deserved rest and a break. If you're done resting or need something else to do, there's plenty of things on offer on and around Koh Samui, you can go snorkeling or diving or take a dive course. You can also enjoy some of the trips I recommend, like a half day gourmet lunch and snorkeling trip at the Southern part of Koh Samui or a photography trip where you get to see the most photo genetic spots on the island or go for a drinks tasting tour if you like a tipple or two. 

Contact me for more detailed information on any of the options mentioned.
