This year’s Laguna Phuket Marathon is set to take place over the course of two days—June 3rd and 4th—at the Laguna Phuket destination resort. Runners can compete across five distances: 2km Kids Run, 5km Run, 10.5km Run, Half Marathon (21km) and Marathon (42km). Already almost 2,000 people have signed up to be part of the full marathon. This is the 12th staging of this annual event, and a record total turnout of more than 7,000 runners, from over 40 countries, is expected. The event also serves as a platform to raise funds for charitable causes and projects organized by Laguna Phuket Foundation, which this year will launch the ‘Children First Fund’ to support more than 400 orphans in 7 orphanages in Phuket.
Located on the west side of the island, the Laguna Phuket offers visitors and participants a vast array of facilities as well as a prime beachfront location, making it an attractive destination to extend their holiday, before or after the race.
