To promote tourism in Phuket, Bangkok Airways recently organised the “Bangkok Airways Phuket Half Marathon”, the fourth running programme of the Bangkok Airways Boutique Series 2019 at Saphan Hin Park, Phuket.
All runners got the opportunity to admire the beautiful locales of the city along the running route. One of the highlights of the programme is ‘Care the Bear: Change the Climate Change’ which is a partnership project between the airline and The Stock Exchange of Thailand. The campaign aims to reduce carbon emission from events. At the event, Bangkok Airways took the initiative forward by segregating the waste, reducing the use of plastic and foam and promoting the re-use of event decorations.
Bangkok Airways Phuket Half-Marathon is the fourth event out of six planned programmes of the Bangkok Airways Boutique Series 2019. The remaining programmes are the Chiang Rai Marathon on 15 September and Lanna Half Marathon on 3 November 2019.
