The 2017 Angkor Wat International Half Marathon and Bike4Kids weekend is scheduled to be held on 2nd and 3rd December. A reasonably affordable race that also allows you to run through and see one of the world’s oldest temple complexes up close, the event is also a key fundraiser for the Angkor Children’s Hospital (AHC).
A not-for-profit hospital working to improve healthcare for all of Cambodia’s children, based in Siem Reap, Cambodia, the AHC is one of the few paediatric hospitals in Cambodia providing quality, compassionate care to Cambodian children, completely free of charge. The hospital has been serving children and their families for almost twenty years and relies entirely on fundraising to keep the hospital functioning.
The hospital has launched its Get Active campaign to attract as many registrants to run, walk or bike for Team AHC in the upcoming Angkor International Half Marathon and Bike4Kids weekend. A portion of their registration fee also goes directly to the hospital, if you register with Team AHC. There is a high level of international participation at this annual event, and the AHC hopes to entice more runners and cyclists from around the region to take part this year.
Featuring 3km, 10km and 21km distances for the run and 17km, 37km and 117km distances for the cycling event, there is a category to suit every fitness level.
There’s no better excuse to visit Angkor Wat when you’re running for charity, and when you sign up for the event with AHC, you are also entitled to a streamlined registration process and race pack collection. You’ll also have access to a VIP bag drop at the AHC tent onsite.
