The North Face 100 Thailand
This year is the 10th anniversary of the North Face 100 Asia Pacific Series. The NF100 Thailand began in 2012 and was the country's first ever 100km ultra. Since 2013, it has been held in Amphoe Pakchong, adjacent to Khao Yai National Park. It attracts runners from around the world, and roughly 2500 will be competing in 15, 25, 50, 75 and 100km distance options this weekend. Have any of our members run any of the races in this series? It looks a fantastic experience.

RE:The North Face 100 Thailand
It looked an exciting day in Amphoe Pakchong with only 2 minutes separating the first two 100km finishers and only 10 minutes between 1st and 3rd. The top 3 were approximately an hour ahead of all other competitors. First lady Carole Fuchs was an incredible 1 hour 57 minutes ahead of the other women and finished fourth overall. These were the podium finishers and their times:

MEN
1. David Emch (USA) - 9:46:37
2. Kristian Morgan (Great Britain) - 9:48:30
3. Quang Tran (Vietnam) - 9:56:36

WOMEN
1. Carole Fuchs (France) - 10:21:58
2. Wipawee Pratumsuwan (Thailand) - 12:18:24
3. Kazumi Kawamoto (Japan) - 12:56:01

RE:The North Face 100 Thailand
We now have more details of the race. In the early stages, it looked like Thailand's Sanya Khanchai might win for the third time, but David Emch overtook at 36km and held his lead for the remainder of the race. Kristian Morgan had a great second lap and beat his third place finish from last year. In the end, Khanchai came in fourth after Quang Tran.

In the women's race, Carole Fuchs led from the start and her victory was also a course record by more than 40 minutes. Second lady Wipawee Pratumsuwan was racing her first ever 100km and may be one to watch in future.
