The Sixth Preserve Hua Hin Heavy Half Marathon is on tap for the 4th of April.

The 6th annual Preserve Hua Hin Run will be organised by the Preserve Hua Hin Group in coordination with Prachuab Khirikhan Province, the Hua Hin Municipality, and the local public and private sectors. Runners will find the Preserve Hua Hin Heavy Half Marathon a real challenge with a steep climb up Hin Lek Fai Hill. This year we were encouraged by the Prachuab Khirikhan provincial authority to include our run with the special events of the province to highlight “sports for health” and the promotion of tourism.
