Thousands of people of all ages turned out to take part in the annual Pattaya Marathon.

There were several different races, the full marathon, half-marathon, 10km and a 3.7km race, plus a 3.7km wheelchair race, and it was in the latter race that a large group of our students took part.

It was an early start for the students and arrived an hour before the start time at 6:25 in the morning which gave them time to warm up and get themselves ready for the race.

The sun was rising when they set off and it did not take long for the first student to cross the finish line. Congratulation and well done to everyone who took part.
