Members of the "Wild Boars" football team and their coach pose before participating in a marathon.
Some of the 12 young Thai soccer players and their coach have marked the anniversary of their ordeal that saw them trapped in a flooded cave for two weeks with a commemorative marathon in northern Thailand.
Around 4,000 took part in the marathon and biking event Sunday morning, organized by local authorities to raise funds to improve conditions at the now famous Tham Luang cave complex.
The youngsters went in to explore before rain-fed floodwaters pushed them deep inside the dark complex. Their rescue was hailed as nothing short of a miracle.
Nine of the boys and their coach ran the marathon, donning the event's orange T-shirts and looking notably taller and older.
The Wild Boars teammates were at the center of attention as they smiled and posed for photos.
