Satree Phuket strides for new sports facilities

PHUKET: Satree Phuket School will hold a mini-marathon this coming Sunday dedicated in honor of HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn’s 60th birthday on April 2.

The event, held in association with the Sport Association of Phuket, will also serve as a fundraiser for the school’s new, high-standard sports facility, said Koson Saikao, principal of Satree Phuket School.

“The new sports complex will cost between five and 10 million baht. We are expecting to raise 2mn baht at the Satree Phuket mini marathon event,” said Mr Koson.

“After the building is complete, it will be used for sports lessons and practice, as well as national sports competitions.”

The event will consist of two runs: a 3.5-kilometer fun run and a 10.5km run. Winners will receive a trophy and medal.

The registration fee will be 300 baht. All registrants will receive a participation t-shirt.

For more information about prizes and registration, contact Satree Phuket School between 8:30am and 4pm before Friday by calling 076-211034 or 076-222368.
