Koh Samui Midnight Run
March 23 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Koh Samui Midnight Run has been put together by the Thai Hotels Association (THA) in conjunction with the Thai Association of Koh Samui (TAKS). The maiden midnight run took place in March 2015 in Chaweng.
2020 – BoPhut Race at Chawang Beach
Participants have the choice of taking the 5-kilometer run or the 10-kilometer run which involves 2 loops of the five-kilometer run. The course of the run follows the Chaweng Lake Road through Chaweng Beach Road before ending up at the Sound Club and back to the Reggae Pub.
Participants who so desire may take part in the Koh Samui Midnight Run as a family. Fancy dress is encouraged for kids as it will add a flair of fashion to the highly publicized event. There are a number of categories based on age and sex including under 11yrs, 12-17yrs, 18-49yrs and 50yrs and above. There will be trophies awarded for each category as well as overall winners of the Midnight Run.
The midnight run aims to raise funds for two charity organizations, namely The Green Project, a brainchild of THA as well as a new school for autistic children in Koh Samui. On completion of the race, participants will be awarded trophies by the Mayor of Koh Samui together with the presidents of THA and TAKS.
Early registration for the Koh Samui Midnight Run can be done on the event’s website and payments made online. The cost of the run is the same for both distances and there will be a grand raffle after the awards ceremony.
