Tickets are 300 baht, including a race T-shirt, or 450 baht with a Polo shirt. All tickets include a free breakfast box for after the race, and a lucky draw ticket for some great raffle prizes.

In his remarks, Jeff Rednour, General Manager Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui said, “We are grateful to all the families, individuals and companies who have generously set aside their time to participate at this charity run. It is our pride and privilege to host this event annually and we look forward to your support in its continued success in the years to come.”


There are trophies and prizes for the first male and female runner over the finish line in each category, and for the company, hotel or school that has the most participants. So come on all you Samui visitors and locals, get training, set the alarm clock, lace up those running shoes and head over to Nathon on Saturday June 2nd to join in the fun. Together, let’s help push the Four Seasons Samui Cancer Care pledge. See you there!
