Is A Cambodia Marathon 2019 On Your List?

There are a number of Cambodia marathon 2019 events to choose from. If the flat and fast is your forte, then the Khmer Empire Marathon is a perfect fit. Located in Angkor Wat, the event offers both a half and a full marathon. 

The course races around the many historical monuments that are tourists' favorite, with both the start and the finish at the Angkor Wat Ruins. There is no better way to get a view of all the historical sights on foot then to do it while working your way across the yellow finish line. 

Held in the Capital city, the Phnom Penh half marathon might not be an entire 26.2 miles, but it is a perfect stepping stone for runners who aren't yet ready for a full marathon. The event is held in Mid June when the weather in Cambodia is perfect. It is run to support Kantha Bopha Children's Hospitals, so you know you are racing for a good cause. 

Or, join participants from around the globe at the Angkor Wat International Half Marathon. Another great charity run, the event is held to help landmine victims to afford prosthetic limbs and other financial support for the disenfranchised around Cambodia. 

Whatever inspires you to run a marathon, it can be found in one of Cambodia marathon 2019 events. So, choose a race, or a cause and start training today!
