Koh Samui Midnight Run 2018
The date is set for the 6th charity Midnight Run organized by the Thai Hotel Association (THA) and the Thai Association of Koh Samui (TAKS) on the island of Koh Samui.
The run will take place on Saturday 24th March 2018 at Chaweng Beach. Participants will run 5km or 10 km around the buzzy and lively streets of Chaweng Beach. The organizers are expecting between 1000 and 2000 participants for this 6th race and hope to see the charity run become one of the most popular events on the island.
Proceeds from the event will be donated to some very worthy causes: firstly, to Koh Samui’s new School for Autistic Children (specialneedsschoolsamui.com) and secondly to the Green Project supported by the Hotel Associations. The Mayor of Koh Samui together with the presidents of the THA and the TAKS, along with the PR team of Bangkok Airways and all the participating sponsors will be there to hand out trophies and awards to the winners.
Many spectators will turn up to cheer and join in the celebrations as the competitor’s race along the Chaweng beach road and the crowded streets of the Green Mango then cross the finishing line at the Reggae Pub. This Charity Run is set to become one of the main features in Thailand’s calendar of social, sporting and charity events. Definitely, this is an event not to be missed.
The race will start at midnight on Saturday 24th March 2018 exactly from the atmospheric Reggae Pub. Runners with their families and friends wearing fancy dress will inaugurate this 6th Koh Samui Midnight Run. This is the island’s only race to be held at night, allowing runners to enjoy cooler temperatures whilst racing through Chaweng center’s lively neighborhoods on 5 and 10-kilometer routes.
The 5 km run will be one loop around Chaweng: from the Reggae pub around the Chaweng lake road, into Chaweng beach road, through the Soi Green Mango & The Sound Club, back onto the main road to turn right at the Try Out clothes shop, then back to the lake with the finishing line at the Reggae Pub.
The 10 km Run will be the same as the 5km, but with 2 loops around Chaweng.
