Event round-up November 2018

by The Sponsorship Experts, Paul Poole (South East Asia) The month kicks off with the last Spartan Thailand race of the year, held in Hua Hin on 3 November. Participants can choose between two different courses, the 21km Spartan Beast race with more than 30 obstacles designed to really push people to their limits, and the 5km Spartan Sprint race with more than 20 obstacles. Kids can compete in the Kids race with distances between 0.8km and 3.2km.  The following week, on 9 November, the Run Your City 2018 aims to create public awareness of urban environmental issues and waste management. Organised by Thammasat University and sponsored by Ananda Development, the run will take place in Bangkok’s Benjakitti Park and the adjacent tobacco factory and there will also be a fundraiser to support various environmental projects.  The famous Laguna Phuket Triathlon will be held for the 25th time on 18 November. The longest running triathlon in Asia, the event attracts professional triathletes from all over the world, all vying for a spot on the podium and part of the US$20,000 prize money purse. The triathlon is unique in that the 1.8km swim is divided into a 1.3km ocean swim immediately followed by a 0.5km swim in one of Laguna Phuket’s freshwater lagoons. A 50km bike route will then take participants through the picturesque and challenging terrain of northern Phuket before they embark on a 12km run around the grounds of Laguna Phuket.  18 November is also the date of Thailand’s biggest marathon, the BDMS Bangkok Marathon. Held since 1988, the race takes participants past famous Bangkok monuments on four different distances: Marathon (42.195km), Half Marathon (21.1km), Miniature Marathon (10km) and Micro Marathon (5km).
