Phuket’s Sporting Spirit


Phuket is Thailand’s largest island province stretching across 576 square kilometres in the Andaman Sea. At the heart of this bustling locale is Phuket Town, located on the southern coast of the island and considered the administrative centre of the area, with Phuket hotels like Novotel Phuket Phokeethra nestled amongst its vibrant streets. The west coast of the island is arguably the most popular with holidaymakers as its picturesque coasts are lined with gorgeous Phuket hotels, historical and cultural attractions, plenty of restaurants and bars, and of course white sand beaches that grow longer and become less crowded the further up north you travel.

As a result of its diverse landscapes and picturesque settings, Phuket is a paradise for individuals who love being outdoors, and is an established hub for fun and healthy activities. Its crystal clear waters, bountiful reefs, stunning rock formations and close proximity to the Similan and Surin islands make it a pristine destination for scuba diving and snorkelling. The island’s west coast has also gained popularity as one of the country’s top surf destinations, especially between the months of April and November when the swells are at their largest. In terms of other sports, Phuket is also home to a large freshwater lake where individuals can cable ski or wakeboard at the Phuket Wake Park. Lessons are provided by professional instructors for a fee, so whether you are a beginner or a pro wakeboarder, everyone can enjoy a day on the water.

Apart from water sports, Phuket is also a great destination for watching or practicing Muay Thai (Thai Kickboxing) as there are plenty of gyms and stadiums in and around areas like Patong. Moreover, Phuket is also home to eight top-tier golf courses that fully take advantage of the island’s verdant landscapes and tropical foliage. Many of these courses are situated close to Phuket hotels and Phuket accommodation to ensure the utmost convenience for guests travelling with families, friends or in a couple.

All of the activities listed have become popular options for both locals and foreigners alike. However, the one activity that stands out the most in Phuket is running. Over time, Thailand’s running culture has gained momentum, with the country being host to more than 2,000 races in the past three years. Social media groups based in Thailand that are focused around Thailand marathon running have also become popular with the local and foreign communities, boasting combined memberships of over 100,000. Currently, some of the country’s most popular races happen in the capital city of Bangkok, and in destinations like Chiang Mai and Bang Saen. However, Phuket is actually regarded by many as the running capital of the nation.

Phuket boasts diverse landscapes ranging from sprawling beaches to mountainous terrain and lush jungle. It features uncrowded roads, man-made reservoirs, and public parks. All of which offer abundant space and challenging routes for athletes. These reasons, in addition to others, have made the island a top choice for recreational runners and those training for a Thailand marathon. Phuket itself hosts a number of races over the course of the year but two stand-out choices for a Phuket marathon include the Bangkok Airways Run 2019 and the annual Laguna Phuket Marathon that draws in countless runners from around the globe.

The Bangkok Airways Run 2019 is a six-part running series happening across the country with races in destinations like Krabi and Samui. In August, the race comes to Phuket where thousands of runners will participate in their choice of 5 kilometre fun run, 10 kilometre mini marathon or 21 kilometre half marathon. All routes for the Bangkok Airways Run 2019 start at finish at the scenic Saphan Hin Park in central Phuket Town and the race will take runners past a selection of the island’s notable landmarks like the Saphan Hin Mining Monument and Surin Circle Clock Tower. The entry fees for this Phuket marathon vary, but all of them are inclusive of a race t-shirt, bib and commemorative medal. There will also be water and refreshment stations located at every 2 kilometre mark during the Bangkok Airways Run 2019.
