I took part in the 2011 Laguna Phuket International Half Marathon, which was advertised as "Run Paradise!". It was not paradise. I will not return and I would not recommend the event. Things started badly at the pasta party the night before the race. Although it was scheduled until 21h00, when I arrived at 19h30 most of the food was gone and what remained was cold. I shovelled congealed macaroni and cheese into my mouth as hotel staff cleared tables around me. Phuket is an island where hilly jungles meet beautiful beaches and could host an inspiring half marathon. Unfortunately, the route of this race was a disappointing there-and-back along a busy road amidst scrubby farmland. By avoiding more urban areas, the route was also doomed to have poor support along the roadsides. Perhaps the full marathon had a more interesting course, but I find this unlikely as the marathon, half marathon and 10.5km routes all used the same roads. In fact, for the last 7km of the half marathon, runners had to contend with the plodding tail end of the 10.5km race. During the race, there were only drinks stations every 2.5km, which is not often enough given the temperature and humidity (most races in SE Asia have stations every 2km). At the end of the race, there was no goodie bag and all runners received the same medal, regardless of what distance they had run. At 2 700THB (expensive for a race in Thailand), the whole event had the feel of a money making exercise. The only positives that save the event from the indignity of a 1* review was that the running vest is nice and the post-race massage, food and drink was well organised.
