Bang Niew Dam is a located in Thalang District of Phuket, Some locals and Phuket-Based barely even heard of it or even knew it existed. Racer began their 10km trail at 6:00am on the west side of the island in the Kamala Area where they will start making their up the mountain heading east. As in the name Andaman Trails, it is hiking up the mountain in the dark with no roads. The trail is designated by flags which was place prior to the event to give racers direction. As the racers make their way down the mountain towards Bang Niew Dam where they'll cross the finish line, the view is magnificent.
