Hosted at the Felix River Kwai Resort and Spa, the race will get underway at 8.30 a.m. at the famous River Kwai Bridge and 150 teams from around the world are expected to take part.
This year’s event will be split into two separate race categories: Adventure (easier course for newcomers and W.E. warriors) and Extreme (longer course for confirmed athletes and experienced racers). Teams of 2 will be challenged by a series of disciplines including running, kayaking, biking, swimming and other mystery tests.

“Kachanaburi is a place of historical significance and it also has stunning scenery to offer. 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.
A host of other activities including shows and performances from local artists, universities and schools, a children’s corner and games area, evening parties and a grand gala dinner are being arranged to coincide with the race weekend.
