Phuket, Thailand, 10 September 2019 – Phuket Marriott Resort and Spa, Nai Yang Beach was the proud sponsor of the recent “King of the Mountain” trail running event, which took place in southern Thailand’s picturesque Khao Phra Thaeo National Park on September 9th, 2019.
As a key supporter of this challenging event, the resort sponsored the top prizes for the winners of the men’s and women’s 15km races: two-night stays in a Garden Cabana Pool Access Room, including daily breakfast, and evening dinner vouchers at Big Fish Restaurant & Bar.
The winners of both 15km races, Aekkalak Jhankaeo and Parichart Saengsuwan, were young Thai nationals who regularly compete in running events in Phuket. The prize packages were valued at more than THB40,000 (approx. US$1,400).
Approximately 700 athletes took part in the King of the Mountain races, which were hosted by Thanyapura Health & Sports Resort and included 4km, 8km and 15km races through the tropical countryside, across hilly terrain and past beautiful waterfalls in Khao Phra Thaeo National Park, in Phuket’s Thalang district.
“Our sponsorship of the King of the Mountain races forms part of our Marriott’s commitment to be a force for good and serve our community. Our sustainability and social impact platform, ‘Serve 360: Doing Good in Every Direction,’ guides us to make a positive impact to local community. This is the third year since the opening of Phuket Marriott Resort and Spa, Nai Yang Beach, and we are happy to partner with Thanyapura Health & Sports once again. We are strongly committed to supporting their sports events and encourage more people to be part of Thanyapura’s activities in the near future,” commented Panchan Noimeecharoen, Assistant Marketing Communication & PR, Phuket Marriott Resort and Spa, Nai Yang Beach.
