The Laguna Phuket Marathon has come a long way since its inception. It was first held in 2006 and has since grown into a bucket list Marathon experience. The event continuously innovates, incorporating themes like environmental protection, local markets and a mini-concert during and after the race. Each year’s race is a fresh and exciting experience.

What is a marathon without a memorable souvenir? The race offers participants a special keepsake in the form of a unique T-shirt and medal.
