Thousands of runners take part in one of the world’s biggest bikini beach races.
Fitness fanatics and beachgoers descended on the coastal city of Pattaya, eastern Thailand, for the mass Pattaya Bikini Race 2019 fun run on June 8 afternoon.
Many women wore bikinis while some men wore speedos or swimming trunks to jog along the beach in sweltering 38C temperatures.
Several cash prizes were on offer for the winners in different categories. The events included a 3km run and another 9km.
The day was organised by local businesses and government officials to promote tourism in the city, best known for its vibrant nightlife.
Before the bikini beach race 2019, there was an attempt to break the world record for the most people doing lunges in one place but it failed.
