Pattaya Trail – Half Marathon
The number of competitors is limited to 500 and the race starts at 6am. Be prepared for hilly terrain as the cumulative elevation is 350 meters. The 21 kilometer race costs 1,200THB to enter although this does include a bib, T-shirt, and medals. And the winners will receive trophies from 1st position to fifth.
The Half Marathon is a serious event, and athletes should be in good physical shape in order to take part. Some of the course negotiates difficult terrain, so proper equipment and serious hydration should be used by everybody taking part.
Super Mini Marathon 16K
Starting thirty minutes after the Half Marathon this 16K run is a popular event for competitors. The course follows part of the actual half marathon course and is a tricky test of stamina and endurance.
Super Fun Run
Starting at 6:45 the Super Fun Run covers a distance of 8K and takes place on fairly level terrain. The Super Fun Run will test social runners and children, but is a wonderful way to compete on the day if the full 21 kilometers is a little too hard.
An enjoyable event for all the family over 3.5 kilometers, with an estimated one thousand eight hundred competitors taking early morning exercise at Horseshoe Point in Pattaya. Whole families take place in the Fun Run every year and enjoy the activity together.
