Pattaya Bikini Run 2020 will be held on October 31, Halloween and Loy Krathong, with special lights and sounds to boost domestic tourism. More than a thousand runners are expected to join.

A planning meeting yesterday was held at the Pattaya City Hall and was led by the Pattaya City Deputy Mayor Ronnakit Eakkasing.

Deputy Mayor Ronnakit said, “This year it will be different from last year as the run will take place on Halloween Night which is also Loy Krathong. We will put emphasis on special lights, decorations and sounds with lots of extra fun activities.”

“The running will be along five kilometres mainly on Pattaya beach. Runners must wear bikinis this year or a similar outfit. There are now more than one thousand runners who have joined the race. ”

“However, we are still focused on social distancing. Two hundred runners will be released at each time with two minutes separate for each set. The event will follow hygiene standards for Covid-19 as well.”

“The running will be on the same day as the Loy Krathong Festival which will be finished early so people can float their Krathong. It is expected to be finished by 11:00 PM on October 31. The date is also Halloween which will see many Halloween events and parties across Pattaya hopefully making the town lively.” The Deputy Mayor concluded.
