Destination resort Laguna Phuket will host an exciting new sporting event, The Singha obstacle Trail Run on 2 May 2020. Dubbed ‘Keng’ (meaning -to excel), the race will be Singha’s very first beach obstacle trail event and mark the beginning of Singha Obstacle Trail Series 2020.
It will be set up amidst the resort’s scenic tropical parkland by the beautiful Bangtao Beach. Partially extending north to neighbouring area, the race course weaves through beautiful lagoon, beach, dirt and road trails, strategically dotted by purpose-built obstacles to create a truly unique race experience.
“Phuket is one of the world’s top sports tourism hubs. With Laguna Phuket recognised as best sports event venue in Thailand (in 2018), we are thrilled to add the Singha Obstacle Trail Run to Phuket’s sporting event calendar,” said Paul Wilson, senior assistant vice president of group golf and destination sales and marketing in Laguna Phuket.
“The obstacle race layout will showcase the diverse natural environment throughout the destination of Laguna Phuket and runners will have a unique playground to test their limits. This exciting new race ideally compliments our world-renowned Laguna Phuket Marathon and Laguna Phuket Triathlon,” he added.
The nationwide Singha Obstacle Trail Series also includes a ‘Krang’ (tough) episode in Ratchaburi Province in September. The series’ finale is ‘Kla’ (brave), scheduled for December in Chiang Rai.
