Dong Phayayen – Khao Yai X6 Series NANG RONG NAKHON NAYOK


Leaving Bangkok

For the 21km trail run @ Dong Phayayen, Khao Yai.

It’s about a 2 hour drive, we will up load some photos of anything interesting along the the way.

Plus full details of the event, HERE

Arrived Safely

Registration complete, well organized event so far.

It would not be a Thai event without the customary 2m x 3m high stacked speakers, thumping out whatever suits the mood.

Being an ex DJ I cant help but wanting to play some tracks through their massive set up.

Hotel Check in

We were met by a lovely lady who showed us to our room. Nice and quiet room away from the busy traffic heading to Khao Yai National Park.

Did I forget something?

Finisher

Turns out we didn’t need all that gear. It was a 80% road race, with plenty of water stations along the way.

Really enjoyed the run, great event and well organized.

Update on who won to follow.
