All runners had an opportunity to enjoy beautiful beach scenery of Koh Samui and experience the unique lifestyle of the fisherman’s village on the island with Bangkok Airways’ signature boutique touch that features on running shirts, medals and trophies which were designed by stupidnoobmacc, the renowned Thai illustrator behind “BabyBoy” character using iconic symbols of Koh Samui to integrate into the design.
