Why Heartbreak Hill? Heartbreak Hill refers to many steep ascents in Naithon-Layan area during the race, considered difficult for the runners. It is not only elevation change which makes a hill tough but there is also the rate at which that change happens and at what point in the race, which also make a big difference. 

Naithon-Layan Hill will test runners at the start and toward the end of the race and the elevation is different for each climb. We want people to test themselves against the hill, you will either climb it or it will beat you and break your heart. To help encourage the runners we will have entertainment on the hill along with cheerleaders & other entertainments. There is no other mini marathon we are aware of on the island that has this type of difficulty. All of this will take place in the natural scenery around Naithon beach, Layan beach and the areas where we hope to rename the hill “heartbreak hill” after the event as a reminder to those people training for our future mini marathon.

Our objective
To encourage everyone to strengthen their bodies with exercise and maintain a healthy lifestyle and to provide a social connection between runners, hotel guests, associates, school children, university students, government officers and the local communities of Phuket and nearby provinces.

This fundraising will support improving education and well-being of underprivileged children. Our priority is to raise funds for local schools in Phuket and nearby provinces and support to Accor Yim Kids Project part of ACCORHOTELS Corporate Social Responsibility.

What is “Yim Kids?”
Yim Kids was launched in Thailand in 2006 with the mission of improving the well-being of underprivileged children through the provision of healthcare aid as well as access to education..

ACCOR hotels would like to invite people to join our event on September, 18th, 2016 start at 6am – Naithon Beach
