The exact race dates haven't been released yet but it will be in February 2020. The registrations will open mid-August and it will be announced on our Facebook page and here on the website.
If you are planning to participate to one of the 4 races, don't wait for the last months to book a place where you will spend a night or more on the island. Like in the past years, the closest hotels, guesthouses and resorts on the east coast will be fully booked.
Meanwhile, you need to train, this is not an easy forest running, be prepared to sweat A LOT.

Some of you will have to spend one night in Bangkok and not far from Suvarnabhumi Airport before leaving Thailand.
I have tested and listed 5 hotels around the airport, from different categories and different budgets but the one I recommend and which is now my favourite is The Park Nine Suvarnabhumi hotel.
It's located 15 minutes from the airport, they have free shuttles, the hotel is new, modern, cosy and very relaxing. Rooms are spacious and clean, they have 2 restaurants, the swimming pool is beautiful, they have saunas and if you want to visit around, at 10 minutes walk there is a small street food market and a very nice temple which has free entrance.
Prices are reasonable and you can get very good deals.
Here are the 4 other airport hotels that I have also listed and tested: Bangkok Suvarnabhumi International Airport's Hotels

Songkran is the Thai New Year's national holiday. Songkran starts on the 13th of April every year, but the holiday period extends from the 14th to 15th of April.
If you are leaving Koh Chang on Monday, expect to have a long waiting time at the ferry pier. It's the same every year, hours of waiting.

Moley's Resort belongs to my favourite places on Koh Chang.
It's located directly on Klong Prao estuary, away from the busy and noisy main road. It's a very nice place to relax but also to eat or have a drink. Moley, the owner, is a great host and he loves to chat with his guests. He can recommend you places to visit, what to do, if you love fishing, he has a few rods ready for you and he can also rent you a motorbike if you need.
Trust me, you won't de disappointed!
