The fourth Laguna Phuket International Marathon 2009 is now exactly 100 days away and it is gearing up to be the biggest, best and most runner friendly ever. In this newsletter we will introduce this year’s event sponsors as well as an announcement of a photo competition with great prizes. We also give you some environmental tips on how you can help minimize the impact of the event on the Phuket environment. We hope you enjoy reading it and look forward to seeing you all in Phuket on 14 June 2009!
Early Bird Registration
The early bird registration period will end on 31 March 2009. Entries at the moment are well above last years’ entries in the same period so that another participation record is expected. The Laguna Phuket hotels are also filling up very quickly so make sure you book your room before it is too late. Room rates start at THB 4,385 and several promotional deals are also available. Instant bookings can be made on the registration website.
Race Day Walk for Individuals and Corporate groups
The 5K Walk is what makes the Laguna Phuket International Marathon a truly family friendly event for all. Since it’s inception in 2007 the Walk has seen rapid growth and it might soon be the most popular distance at the event. Corporate groups and groups from hotels around Phuket and Phang-nga in particular have embraced the event as an excellent way for their staff to get together in a fun event. Team Laguna entered more than 100 participants last year and their target for this year is to reach 300 participants. The new start time at 8:00 am will make the event even more interesting especially for those who find it difficult to get out of bed early on the weekend. So get your friends together and join the fun! Register here.
