Description
The 7th Phnom Penh International Half Marathon on June 18
By: Manju- Viravudh​ | 6 months ago

The seventh Phnom Penh International Half Marathon will come under the starter's orders in front of the Royal Palace on the early morning of June 18 with up to 5,000 runners likely to take part in the showpiece event and two other added attractions, the 10 km run for men and women and a 3 km fun run for all ages and athletic abilities.

 

The 21 km Phnom Penh run, which supports the Kantha Bopha Children's hospitals and other charitable causes commemorates the birthday of Queen Mother Norodom Monineath Sihanouk falling exactly on the same day.

 

"It is a very pleasant co-incidence that the half marathon is on the same day as the Queen Mother's birthday. This is a major sports tourism initiative and benefits the city in many ways. I hope the municipal authorities work closely with us to elevate this very important event in the national calendar" Secretary General of National Olympic Committee of Cambodia Vath Chamroeun said on the sidelines of a news conference to announce the charity run on Monday.

 

"So far up to 1000 runners have registered of which 200 mostly for the 21km run are foreigners. In keeping with the yearly progression We expect the total number of entries to increase by between 10 and 15 per cent. At the end of this run we will actively consider upgrading the next year's event to a full marathon so that Phnom Penh could be among major cities in the world holding this annual 42km run" The NOCC Secretary General said.

 

While overseas participation drawn from 34 countries showed a marked increase last year, the total number of participants also touched a new high heightening optimism that the numbers could be even bigger this year.

 

"Increase in numbers, especially overseas runners over the years has been a positive sign. The new route that we introduced in 2015 that took the runners across the river twice has gone down very well with the participants" noted Vath Chamroeun.

 

Like the last year's route, the runners go past the Cambodia-Japan Friendship Bridge for the first time on their way up. They then turn back towards the finish line in front of the Royal Palace through the Cambodia-China Friendship bridge
