June is the month for runners in Thailand.

One of Thailand’s most hotly anticipated sporting events take place on June 9 & 10, the popular Laguna Phuket International Marathon. Now in its 13th year, the race is one of the most well-attended races in Asia with runners flying to Phuket from all over the world. Races are held from sunrise to sunset over two days across five distances, with a 2km kids run, a 5km run and a 10k run taking place on 9 June, and the half marathon and full marathon distances taking place on 10 June.

Throughout the Kingdom fruit festivals are organised to showcase the best fruit and vegetables.
