Laguna Phuket Marathon all set for Sunday
The Laguna Phuket International Marathon is all set to take place this Sunday 10 June 2012, despite some pretty dismal weather over the last week. The event will again feature a Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K Run, 91.5FM Phuket 5K Community Walk and a 2K Kids Run.
The course is basically an out and back course with a loop for the last 10K. Marathon and Half Marathon runners follow the course out of Laguna and then head north through local villages and rubber plantations. The course is very scenic and runners can appreciate the lush vegetation Phuket has to offer.
The event is a fun and family oriented affair with various races for all levels. From its humble beginnings with less than 2,000 participants the event has grown to a size of more than 5,000 participants, with an average of 1,500 international participants from 43 countries.
