Thailand’s favourite trail run is back. The North Face 100 Thailand, billed as “Thailand’s Ultimate Trail Running Challenge”, is set to take place on 4th February, 2017 in Pakchong District of Nakhon Ratchasima province and organisers expect more than 3,200 trail runners to take part in what has become the largest gathering of Thai and international trail-runners in the country.

With the popularity of trail running in Thailand on the rise, The North Face 100® Thailand 2017 is expanding offering slots for up to 3,200 runners to compete in the season’s iconic event. New for 2017 is the 75km distance category.

“In addition to the 15km, 25km, 50km and 100km distances, we have added a 75km distance for 2017. Talking with past participants, we see more and more completing the 50km distance and wanting to go longer, but perhaps not yet the iconic 100km distance. Looking to challenge them further, we have introduced the 75km and initial feedback has been very strong,” said Mr. Chanai Payakkapan, Brand Manager of Thai Outdoor Sport Co. Ltd., exclusive distributor of The North Face in Thailand.
