Landrunning World Series

Landrunning is a new sport combining trail running and orienteering. The sport differs from traditional running races in which the race route is not marked on-site; runners choose their own route from one checkpoint to another, using a map and compass as guidance.

Pattaya Station is the first ever race in the first Landrunning World Series. Come join us in this historical moment!

Show races

  • Excursion to Ko Samet (1 November 2021, Monday)
  • Lecture on orienteering technique (2 November 2021, Tuesday)
  • Networking seminar—Orienteering development in Southeast Asia (6 November 2021, Saturday)
  • Farewell dinner (7 November 2021, Sunday)

All events and activities on this page are subject to change.

Event centre & arenas

The event centre and official hotel is The Ravindra Beach Resort & Spa, along the world famous beach of Jomtien.

Superior room is included in the price of all packages. For other room types, please send us an inquiry.Superior room at The Ravindra Beach Resort & Spa, the official hotel of Thailand International Orienteering Championship & Training Camp 2021

Event centre? Arena?

An event centre is the central office of the entire multi-day event. It’s usually at the official hotel. You can check in, get your runner pack, and buy merchandise at the event centre.

We’re planning for hotel packages for you to enjoy more of the races with less hassle. You can buy a hotel package so you can register for the races and book a room at the official hotel in one go.

An arena is the central location of a particular race. You need to travel to the arena by yourself. Each race will have an arena. At the arena, you prepare for your race, meet other runners,  and have some snacks. Of course, you can also buy some merchandise at the arena.

Are you an international runner?

In this COVID-19 time, we understand that you may be worried about travel restrictions for Thailand.

No worries—we’re planning for your participation in accordance with Thai laws. Thailand has reopened for international tourism and we’re keeping track of new arrangements and regulations.

Our official hotel, The Ravindra Beach Resort & Spa, offers a quarantine package. If quarantine is required at the dates of the events, we’re prepared to offer additional training content for you to enjoy your quarantine.

You’re protected by the package travel laws if you buy a hotel package. Read the package contract here

Landrunning

What’s Landrunning, really? It’s actually a combination of trail running and orienteering, but distinct from both.

Landrunning differs from running in that the race route is not marked and you run to the next checkpoint with your own way.

Landrunning differs from orienteering in that all checkpoints are directly on paths and the focus is on route choice, instead of fine navigation skills.

The new sport of Landrunning offers the possibility for runners to explore the land and the stories on it.

Organise a Landrunning event

Beside the Landrunning World Series, the Landrunning programme will also consist of local events called Landrunning+ (Landrunning Plus), as well as training and workshops.

Landrunning has great growth potential among the large community of runners worldwide. Therefore, we need local organisers to help with this effort! If your company/club can help, please license a Landrunning event from us. 

We’ll provide the technical know-how, as well as personnel if necessary.

Please contact us for more details.
