Koh Samui Midnight Run

Hi I have just seen this on Camille's Blog, this will make hubby happy, he loves to run, can anyone advise how far is Bophut to Chaweng, I think not too far but just checking, it’s to start at the Reggie bar, which makes me happy, I can relax in bar and wait on hubby doing the 10K.

Date is midnight 30th March

Thanks for advice

I like to run also and usually do about 10k a day but at midnight on March 30th if I'm in the Reggae Bar there's very little chance I'm going to be able to run 10k, nor want to :)

I also am not into running but I will happily sit at the reggae bar and wait for him to come back, we will need a taxi home and that’s not for Stu, it’s for me drinking all night ha-ha

Absolutely agree jamiesamui, drunken drivers, crazy drivers, narrow roads, darkness, potholes - not a good combination.

hi guys

pretty sure its an organised run so may well have an escort of some kind

and hopefully a large group so should not have problems with above mentioned dilemmas

midnight run being very cool time to jog

only problem may be running faster than the traffic in chaweng

good luck

DC

Was just thinking that DC as I opened this, I imagine that they would have some sort of escort.

Hi all this does look to be well organised all roads are to be closed for this event, on the web site it states there are expecting 1000 to 2000 taking part.

Dear Elaine & team,

The event will attract 600 runners and a good other 600 supporters, maybe more.

The start will be at The Reggae Pub in Chaweng which is just 10 minutes from Bophut Beach.

We are looking forward to welcoming you & your husband to the first Charity Koh Samui Midnight Run!

See you on Saturday night!

Cheers!

Alex, Mike & Laurent
