GET READY for the YETI 24 Xtreme Run Challenge of a Lifetime!
>> WHAT IS YETI 24?
The Yeti 24 Xtreme Run Challenge is a local community fundraising event to Run 8 kilometers, every 4 hours, for 24 hours!
Fastest time to complete the Challenge WINS 10,000 BAHT! kindly donated by our sponsors at X Body Food.
Everyone can take part, it’s much more of a mental challenge than a physical one. You can either walk or run the 8km, every 4 hours for 24 hours. This is a total of 6 runs and 48km.
>> WHEN: 27th February 2021
>> WHERE: Palapon Weight Loss Camp & Fitness Retreat in Khao Takiab
Palapon is proud to organize and host the YETI 24 Xtreme Run Challenge and will be providing all runners with the specialist sports nutrition from X Body Food, volunteers to accompany, motivate & support the runners, private rest areas to relax in-between runs, physiotherapy, blister care, laundry and more.
Many of us have been heartbroken to have events cancelled and gyms closed and try by any means to stay motivated and engaged. Finally, we can all get together and do something meaningful to support the local Thai community children. Test your abilities, push your limits and focus your mind. You can do this!
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to take advantage of the VIP support service from Palapon, with specialist Sports Nutrition from X Body Food that will make this challenge much easier than if you were trying to do it alone. In between runs you can simply relax, take a dip in our pool, nap in a private bungalow, replenishing your energy with our specialist food & drink whilst we take care of you with ice packs, blister care and massage therapy.
>> ENTRY COST: FREE!
However, as this is a local community fundraising event, all we ask is for each runner to raise at least 2,500 baht in sponsorship to help support the children of Khao Takiab Government School.
