At Ban Hang Finish Village

All distances finish at the Race Village, Ban Hang, on the edge of the Nature Reserve. This is a very remote village and all the homestays will play host to our runners, so this will become a unique trail running settlement for one weekend only!

This is a small Thai minority community where time stands still. The traditional stilt houses are surrounded by limestone mountains and rice paddies.

For the race weekend this community will become trail running central offering a unique chance to stay with just the locals and like-minded, adventurous runners for company.

The shared, traditional stilt houses provide simple, clean accommodation. Each runner will get their own sleeping area within a large communal space with a mattress, blanket and pillow.
