Bangkok Airways Samui Half marathon, Sunday 10th June 2018

Bangkok Airways Samui Half marathon, Sunday 10th June 2018


One of Koh Samui's biggest running events is coming to town again with the Bangkok Airways Samui Half marathon, Sunday 10th June 2018.
After last years race that included also the full marathon distance, this years event will see the half marathon as longest distance. There will also be an option to run a 10km or a 5km race.

This half marathon is part of a series of six half and full marathons, including races in Krabi, Koh Samui, Lampang, Phuket, Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai.

Bangkok Airways Samui Half marathon, Sunday 10th June 2018

This years date, Sunday 10th June 2018, may coincide with dates of a PADI IDC on Phuket, so there's no guarantee for me yet that I can participate. This years race original date was planned a week later, but unfortunately Bangkok Airways had already an event scheduled on koh Samui for that date, so an alternate date had to be found; Sunday 10th June.
It's also unfortunate that this dates coincides with another big running event in Southern Thailand, the Laguna Phuket marathon. Some Samui runners will actually participate in this event on the same date.
Nonetheless, I hope I can participate and furthermore really hope that this event will become a yearly event on the Samui running calendar!

Bangkok Airways Samui Half marathon, Sunday 10th June 2018; The 2018 half marathon route, with start and finish at Nathon and leading the race into the Lipa Noi area

Last year the marathon and half marathon route passed out house on Koh Samui, this year the event will take place at a completely different part of the island.
The start will be at the Nathon pier area, an area often used area for starting and finishing a running event on Koh Samui. What is relatively new is the route, it will lead into the Lipa Noi area, where there will be a turn around point which will lead back to the start and finish line.
This route was also used five years for a Samui Triathlon race.

Come and join the fun, you can sign up at Teelakow, the organizers website.

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.
