Thailand Ultra and the Power of 10.
To run the 100 km Thailand Ultra Marathon, or better known as the “BEAST”, is a tough challenge, even more so after Red Bull named it the 5th hardest Ultra Marathon in Asia. Yet we’ve added a twist to this challenge and decided to get running straight off the tarmac, after landing in Bangkok, to the starting point. Little did we know that it was 1 000km away, in addition to the already beastly race we were about to face, we had just turned this Ultra marathon into a Mega one.
