The ibis Koh Samui Trophy 2010 Adventure Race and Fun Run
for all is now confirmed on October 2, 2010

The second edition of The ibis Koh Samui Trophy brings the new, spectacular
and fast growing sport of Adventure Racing to the South of Thailand.

Supported by ibis Hotels, the Tourism Authority of Thailand, the Tourism
Association of Koh Samui and the Thai Hotel Association of Koh Samui,
this inaugural Adventure Race is set to attract teams from around the world.

Scheduled on October 2 and part of the Amazing Thailand Adventure Race Series,
the race will start and finish on the magnificent Bophut beach.

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 sport people in Thailand and around the world.
?After the tremendous international success of the last River Kwai
Trophy in Kanchanaburi, we are very excited to bring quality
Adventure Racing in Samui again? explains Serge Henkens, the Race
Director and managing director of Active Management Asia.

Some of the sponsor?s donations will go to environment friendly initiatives
brought by ?The Green Island Project?,a local green association.

?Despite 10 years of unbelievable development, the Island has still a
lot to offer and it remains a paradise destination? continues Henkens.
?Well-known for its magnificent beaches, Samui? also offers fantastic
opportunities for Adventure and Great Outdoor lovers. The Island has
all the ingredients for a memorable race: the blue ocean, forests, mountains,
water falls, sandy beaches and a very rich fauna and flora. The perfect recipe
for great Adventure Racing? continues Henkens.

This year?s event looks even more interesting with top Asian teams coming from
China, Hong Kong and Singapore to challenge local champions and last year winners
Chadarak Chaikamjorn-Suwat Phaiboon. Ibis Samui Bophut, as the main sponsor of
this exciting event is pleased to welcome all participants to its modern beachfront hotel.
The hotel is surely the best value for money on the island with international standards
and friendly service. Competitors will be able to soak up the scenery, the wide sandy
beach and the peaceful atmosphere of ibis? Samui Bophut for a well-deserved relaxing time.

A great Sports day for all As AMA strives to promote the sports for youngsters in Thailand
and in order to make it a festive event and involve? the Samui residents we have decided
to offer a 5km fun run for all in parallel to the Adventure Race.

All Samui? schools have been invited and all children and families are warmly welcome to
participate to this unique event that promises to be one of the highlights of an active W.E.
This run will raise participant?s numbers and create a festive, sporty and friendly atmosphere throughout the day.

?We wanted to involve local communities and people who are not keen to compete in a strenuous adventure race?,
say Henkens. ?This running initiative will give the opportunity for all to participate in this unique sport?s
day event!
Schools will also animate the activities throughout the day with dances, show and songs?.

?The ibis Koh Samui Trophy 2010? consists of 3 days of activities including:
