Thailand’s Prime Minister and Defence Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha is considering the launch of a series of international standard cross-country running tournaments to boost tourism. While the idea is at an early stage of development, the Prime Minister is seeking input from the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MNRE).

 

The runs will take place along defined trails in all four regions of Thailand, with the first planned Kanchanaburi province.

 

Officials are working on the design of the routes, in order to offer participants with the most interesting and varied terrain, from forest trails to mountain passes, which are already of interest to the younger, environmentally aware generation.
