The Moon Koh Phangan Trail run 15-16 June 2019

A big trail running event is coming up, The Moon Koh Phangan Trail run 15-16 June 2019. Just two week after the Bangkok Airways Samui half marathon on 2nd June.

The distances you can choose from are 100km, 62km, 32km and 15km. I will participate in the 15km run. A day after the Cancer Care charity 10km run in Nathon.

The 100km and 62km races will start 15th June and the 32km and 15km races start 16th June.

Trail running is becoming very popular around Thailand and in the overall South East Asian region. However, events in Southern Thailand were rather rare. This is slowly changing. We just had the Samui cross earlier this month. A few other trail races have already taken place or are scheduled throughout the year. Including in locations like Phuket and Khanom.
It's not my favorite style of running but I will participate if the race is near enough. So far I have participated in two trail half marathons and two 10km events. My only Indonesian race was the Bromo half marathon, a few years back.

The race routes of the 4 separate trail runs on Koh Phangan. The organizers went out of their way and have pretty much 4 different routes for each race.

On Koh Phangan you can choose for 4 different distances and each distance has some serious elevation.

The elevation gain during my 15km race. It shouldn't be too bad, during my road races I sometimes cover more elevation. Running a second event in a weekend might make it hard though.

It's going to be a fun weekend. If you;re into trail running, this race is a big challenge. If trail racing is new to you, the 15km route may be a good starting point for you.

Hope to see you there.

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. 

You may also opt for a very special dinner experience at The Thai Experience. Behind closed doors, reservation only and a very enjoyable and well worthwhile way of spending an evening on Samui. Authentic Thai food and a great atmosphere. Can highly recommend this experience. 

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