PHUKET, Thailand – A weekend of sporting fun saw a record-breaking 4,000 runners enjoy the 4th Supersports 10 Mile International Run 2018 Phuket Presented by Thanyapura. Held on 24th and 25th March at the award-winning Thanyapura Health & Sports Resort, there was something for everyone with distances including a 500 metre Kids Run, 3 Mile (4.8km), 5 Mile (8km) and the iconic 10 Mile (16km) run, all part of a “Run Festival” concept that has seen the event grow to become one of Phuket’s leading sports events.
