Shoes and a running lesson

CHANG ISLAND, 19 March 2018: Bangkok Airways recently  organised a “Junior Running Clinic,”  for 50 students to join the airline’s “Ultra Trail Unseen Koh Chang,” race.

It was the first sports event of a series of seven that will be sponsored this year.

The Chang Island event gave an opportunity for local kids to learn how to run in a professional race and to inspire them to pursue a healthy sporting lifestyle.

The airline is also donating running shoes for kids in the provinces where the events are hosted.

Students from neighboring schools at the seven-race destinations will get a chance to learn some running techniques from the pros and also receive new running shoes that are donated by registered runners.

The six remaining races will take place in Krabi, Samui Island, Lampang, Phuket, Chiang Rai and Chiang Mai.
