Every year the Marathon & Fun Run begins and ends on Hin Lek Fai Hill and the competitors face the challenge of running down and back up the 800-metre steep incline to finish the race. Male and female categories of various age groups include 21.1 km, 10.5 km and a 3 km Fun Run. Over 2,000 runners from various nationalities participate in this annual event and many return year after year to challenge themselves as well as their fellow competitors. To help address the issues of the rapidly growing population’s increasingly demanding ecological footprint on the municipality, the Preserve Hua Hin Group (PHHG) was formed as a community development organization in 2004. Khun Boonchu Rojanastien, the founder of Chiva-Som International Health Resort and honorary chairman of PHHG, enlisted support from private and public sector organizations to spearhead the development of PHHG and organize activities to promote environmental awareness and preservation, and increase social interaction in the local community.
Since its inception, the driving force of PHHG has been a diverse and dedicated group of local businesses, hoteliers and townspeople who collaborate with state agencies to regularly organize and sponsor events such as outdoor concerts, marathons, art exhibitions, beach clean-ups, reforestation projects and other activities for social welfare and community improvement.
