15th LangSuan Mini Marathon 2019
This year’s edition of the annual mini-marathon that has participants running through the sea to an offshore island is set for 16 June 2019. It takes place in the picturesque seaside setting of Paknam Lang Suan sub-district in the southern Thai province of Chumphon.
The ‘Annual Run Through The Sea to Pithak Island’ features a 14 km Mini Marathon and three km Fun Run. The race routes take in the scenic coastal road and the event’s highlight, a run through about 30 cm of low-tide seawater to the finish line on Pithak Island.
The low tide that occurs annually in June in Paknam Lang Suan results in a stretch of sand between the mainland and the island, and the LangSuan Mini Marathon takes advantage of this to offer runners a race with a difference.
The Tourism Authority of Thailand is among the proud sponsors of this popular event.
Online registration for the 15th LangSuan Mini Marathon is now closed but registration can still be done in person in Lang Suan. The registration fee is 400 Baht for the 14 km Mini Marathon and 300 Baht for the three km Fun Run.
