Koh Samui International Marathon

Samui MarathonThe First International Marathon on Koh Samui was held in February 2010, with the aim to become an annual event in the future.

One pre-race highlight was a Pasta Party for everyone involved in the event, sponsored by the Sala Samui Resort and Spa.

The main event consisted of two races, a full marathon over the distance of 42.2km and a half marathon over 21.1km, the races started from Choengmon and ended in back in Choengmon for the half marathon, while the full marathon continued on to the northern tip of Choengmon.

Additionally to the full and half marathons, there was a short marathon over 5km for runners and walkers alike, which was largely attended by the local schools and local social clubs.

We are looking forward to the 2011 International Marathon on Koh Samui!

      Hello,

      in 2010 the Marathon was held the same time as the Regatta, but in 2011 the Marathon did not take place together with the Regatta.

      Next Year the Samui Regatta will be held on May 28th – June 2nd 2012, but so far no mention of a marathon.

      Maybe it would be a good idea for runners to contact the organizers of the Regatta and ask them about the marathon. If the demand is there, I am sure they will decide to again have a marathon on Samui.

      Sunny Greetings!
      P.
