Part of the Amazing Thailand International Adventure Race Championships Series 2011, the 6th edition of this world-renowned race is supported by the Tourism Authority of Thailand and the Kanchanaburi province.This Race is by far the largest and most exciting Adventure Race in South East Asia. Scheduled for March 5th and part of the Amazing Thailand International Adventure Race Championship Series, the race will start at the famous River Kwai Bridge.

Adventure Racing is a highly visual and dynamic sport genre, stretching competitors to their limits. It is a sport that is rapidly capturing the imagination of sportsmen and women in Thailand and around the world.

The River Kwai Trophy 2011 consists of 2 days of activities including:

  • An Expo village near the bridge where local communities, athletes and tourists will be able to meet in a friendly atmosphere.
  • Parties and VIP hospitality.
  • A spectacular Adventure Race starting from the bridge esplanade.
  • Shows, dances and songs from local artists, universities and schools.
  • Gala dinner and Trophies presentation.
  • Children’s corner and games area.

150 teams from around the world are expected at the start of the Adventure Race.

Altogether, more than 1000 people will attend the event including VIP’s, Sponsor’s guests, Families, Supporters, Media, Competitors and local communities.

Kachanaburi is a place of historical significance of course but it also has stunning scenery to offer. Located not far from Bangkok, the province has all the ingredients for memorable outdoor activities: lakes, jungle, mountains, caves, a very rich fauna and flora and, of course, the Kwai river.  The perfect recipe for great Adventure Racing says Serge Henkens, the Race Director.

We offer 2 divisions, Adventure (easier course) and Extreme (longer course), the race is really accessible to everyone!

The race has grown in popularity over the years and has become the most sought after Adventure Race in South East Asiaconcludes Henkens.

This year’s event is particularly exciting with best Asian teams coming from Hong Kong and Singapore to challenge local champions Saman Gunnan and Seree Ruangsiri (Winners of Yara Bangkok Challenge and ibis Koh Samui Trophy 2010).

Khun Saman Gunnan, the Thailand Adventure Race Champion 2010 is hungry for more silverware and is eager to clinch his first ever River Kwai Trophy victory. Saman has already won Chiang Mai Challenge, Bangkok Challenge and Koh Samui Trophy in the past few years. This is the only Adventure Race title I have not yet won in Thailand says Saman. I have trained very hard to win this edition and bring back the trophy to my country!

It is expected that last year’s winners top athletes from Asia Pacific Adventure,Ryan Blair and Piers Trouzel,will have their work cut out if they want to retain the trophy and keep it in Hong Kong for another year!
