Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) Phuket office Director Kanokkittika Kritwutikon, Associate Dean of Faculty of Tourism Management of Outdoor Education Centre from National Institute of Development Administration (NIDA) Dr Pithon Monpanthong, Secretary of the Wild Animal Rescue Foundation of Thailand (WARF) Tanapat Payakpatorn and President of the Old Phuket Town Community Don Limnunthaphisit joined the press conference held at at Limelight Avenue.
“Nowadays, running is a very popular way to exercise as we can see from celebrity Artiwara Kongmalai (Toon Bodyslam) who started the charity run “Kao Kon La Kao” and which made people give more importance to running as an exercise,” V/Gov Thavornwat said.
“Governor Norraphat Plodthong has given an order to every local administrative organization to hold activities to encourage teenagers and the public to have opportunities to work out and to have a sport community, which will be beneficial for the nation in the future,” he added.
V/Gov Thavornwat noted that the Phuket Night Run will be different from other common running activities as participants will run at night time, which allow them to have a “different experience of running”.
“Especially during the Chinese New Year Festival when Phuket Town will be full with colorful decorations. Another different thing is that the participants will not only enjoy running while seeing the Phuket Old Town, but also have a chance to donate their money to the charity,” he said.
Ms Kanokkittika added, “TAT has a policy to support sport and tourism activities, and Phuket is considered an appropriate place to become a sport tourism destination. I think the Phuket Night Run is going to be successful. The activity will also promote tourism in the Phuket Old Town area to be more lively.”
