Thailand by UTMB® will be based around the highest mountain in Thailand, Doi Inthanon in the Chiang Mai Provence, and at 2,656 metres, it is known locally as “The Roof of Thailand”. This national park is located in the north-west of the country, allowing runners the chance to get off the beaten track and experience a true adventure; crossing rivers, chasing hidden waterfalls, passing royal burial grounds, and learning about the local people.

Trail runners can choose from four distances; the 175km ‘Inthanon 6’ ultra-race, the ‘Inthanon 5’ 119km, ‘Inthanon 4’ 80km race and the shorter ‘Inthanon 1’ 22km race.

The nearest international airport is less than two hour’s drive from Doi Inthanon in the city of Chiang Mai, and as a partner to the event will offer runners the opportunity to stay in Thailand longer and experience the beauty of the country while enjoying the warm Thai hospitality.
