Khao Yai Trail Marathon @ Samuer Dao Resort Khao Yai

Sunday 4th October 2015 @ Samuer Dao Resort Khao Yai

Race Hunter, in association with Tiger Balm, have organised spectacular trail runs of 3.5km (fun run), 10km (mini marathon), 21km (half marathon) and 42km (full marathon) through the foothills of Khao Yai National Park. The Unesco World Heritage Site will host the event again after successfully doing it in 2014.

The course is mostly flat but covers enough terrain for anyone looking for a bit of a challenge. The trails will be on a marked route that run parallel to the national park, featuring scenic tropical forest views with a chance of spotting animals such as birds and monkeys. Giving all runners breathtaking views and an experience that will last a life time.

As part of the concept, which is “Run With Green”, the event organisers have sought a trail to minimise the impact on the natural environment; they not use plastic cups at water stations. They will only have a limited number of paper cups at each station, so they require every runner to have at least one water bottle on them at all times.
