For the fourth consecutive year, Thailand’s leading sports retailer, Supersports, is organising the country’s only mile-distance race, the Supersports 10 Mile International Run 2018 Phuket Presented by Thanyapura on March 24 and 25, 2018 at Thanyapura Health & Sports Resort. Organisers expect 4,000 people to take part.

The Supersports 10 Mile International Run 2018 Phuket attracts runners from around Thailand and overseas, and offers the largest running event prize purse in Phuket – a combined 110,000 baht.

“Phuket is becoming a centre for sports and it’s events like the Supersports 10 Mile International Run 2018 Phuket that really help to raise the profile of the island as a leading sports destination. This event attracts many international runners and as the popularity of running increases we are seeing more and more runners from around Thailand and in Phuket taking part too,” said Mr. Sakchai Kunanuwatchaidetch, Deputy Governor of Phuket.

The event has grown year-on-year, and in response to increased participation organisers have expanded it to be two days this year, allowing more people to take part and enjoy the beautiful course in the island’s north.

“We’re very excited to be bringing this event back to Phuket for the fourth consecutive year and to be working again with Thanyapura Health & Sports Resort. The event has grown considerably since we launched four years ago and continues to grow each year, as a result we have extended the event to be held over two days in 2018 – March 24 and 25. This will allow more runners to take part, retain the quality runner experience, and ensure runners can enjoy the beautiful course area even more,” said Miss Siraporn Wattana, Vice President of Marketing, Supersports.

“It’s very important to Supersports that we give back to the communities in which we work and on behalf of all the event’s partners and participants, we will be donating a portion of the 2018 entry fees to Pa Krong Cheap School – a school which is located along the run course,” added Miss Siraporn Wattana.

Special entry fees of 500 – 600 baht are available from now until January 10, 2018 with prices increasing after that date. All entrants receive a race BIB, t-shirt, bag and discount coupons for New Balance products. All runners who complete their distance will receive a Finisher Medal while trophies will be presented to the top three in each category for the 5 Mile and 10 Mile distances.

A total prize purse of 110,000 baht will be shared between the top three Thai finishers and top three International (including Thai) finishers for the 10 Mile distance.
