PHUKET: The chief of the Phuket Provincial Health Office is urging runners to beware their own physical condition when taking part in long-distance events after a man collapsed during a half-marathon held in Phuket yesterday (Oct 21) and later died.

 

The man, named in initial reports as Prayut Jiraksa, collapsed during the 14th Mai Khao Marine Turtle Fun Run and Half-Marathon and was taken to Thalang Hospital, where he was reported as pronounced dead.

 

However, all police contacted by The Phuket News today have either refused to reveal any details of Mr Pryaut’s death – or claimed they knew nothing about it.

Sadly this can happen anywhere and to anyone. Even the apparently fittest can develope heart failure.

 

Only a few weeks ago TWO runners died in a similar event in England.

 

I guess the officials did all they could.
