The race will start at the Kamala Sub District Administration Organisation Office and runners will make their way through some charming local communities along a challenging route that takes in hills and rough ground. But there will always be the chance to enjoy a beautiful coastal view of Phuket.

You don’t need to worry about safety as a security guards will be standing every 1km along the trail route, and water stations are also available at the 2.5km, 4.5km, 7km distant marks and of course at the finish point.
