Angkor Wat International Half Marathon and Bike Rally 2008

On the 7th of December the annual Angkor Wat International Half marathon is on and as their slogan reads ‘Run to bring artificial limbs for mine survivors and save youth from HIV/AIDS’. If you fancy taking part or wish to find out more info visit www.angkormarathon.org 

For those based in Siem Reap who would like to participate there are several more options including a mini cyclo race (get your partner to do all the hard work and sit back and relax and take in the temple sites along the way…) or a gentle(!) 30km course on the 6th of December. The 30K races cover one loop around the magnificent Angkor Wat complex and other temples, including Angkor Thom. For those with a bit more stamina a second extended loop will take you further afield! For more information visit http://www.villagefocus.org/angkor_marathon/bike.htm.

There is an entrance fee for all participants in order to raise money to assist vulnerable children and land mine survivors in Cambodia. However, if you do wish to take part and want to help raise funds for HOPE that would be fantastic – If you would like to join the HOPE team please contact us, and I will add you to the list.
