Bangkok--3 Jul--Grand Mercure Phuket Patong Resort & Villas

Following the success of the last three years, Accor Hotels Southern Thailand invites you to take part in another exciting and challenging event. The 4th ACCOR HOTELS "Heartbreak Hill" Mini Marathon will be held in Southern Thailand on Sunday, 16 September 2018 at Khao Khad, Phuket, as part of ACCOR HOTELS CSR's commitment to Southern Thailand.

The hills around Khao Khad will challenge every runner from start to finish with each climb having a different elevation. Runners will be eager to test themselves against the hills — keep climbing or be beaten. There is no other mini marathon on the island with this type of challenge and excitement.

Cheerleading groups will be around to encourage runners on the hills, together with DJs and more at 11 water station points. All of this will take place in the natural scenery surrounding Khao Kad View Point and Ao Yon.

Runners can register at any of the 17 Accor Hotels in Phuket, from now until 3 August 2018 (Monday to Friday between 09:00 and 17:00) as list below.

The objectives:

To create an annual fundraising event to support and improve the education and well-being of underprivileged children within the community in which we live and work. Our priority is to raise funds for local schools in Phuket and nearby provinces and support the Accor Yim Kids Project as part of ACCOR HOTELS corporate social responsibility.

The second objective is to encourage everyone to strengthen their bodies with exercise and maintain a healthy lifestyle while enjoying a social connection between runners, hotel guests, associates, school children, university students, government officers and the local communities of Phuket and nearby provinces.
