“Bangkok Airways Krabi Half Marathon” was recently organized to promote Krabi tourism and to ensure that participants recognize the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
The event was divided into three categories, fun run of 5 kilometers, mini marathon of 10 kilometers and half marathon of 21 kilometers.
All runners had an opportunity to experience the vibrant lifestyle of Krabi city and the natural beauty of the Paknam Krabi area. This year’s participants also experienced Bangkok Airways’ signature boutique touch from the collaboration with stupidnoobmacc, the renowned Thai illustrator behind “BabyBoy” who designed a special collection just for “Bangkok Airways Boutique Series 2019”.
The unique designs using highlights from each province as themes for BabyBoy are featured on the series’ shirts, medals and trophies of each destination.

The remaining programs are the “Samui Half Marathon” on June 2, “Lampang Half Marathon” on July 7, “Phuket Half Marathon” on August 4, “Chiang Rai Marathon” on September 15, and “Lanna Half Marathon” on November 3.
