关于 Sihanoukville International Half Marathon
Sure, Sihanoukville would never win first prize in a pretty-town competition but thanks to a surrounding coastline of white-sand beaches this is Cambodia's most happening sun-sloth destination. Named in honour of the then head-of-state, Sihanoukville (Kong Preah Sihanouk; also known as Kompong Som) was hacked out of the jungle in the late 1950s to create Cambodia’s first and only deep-water port, strategically vital because it meant that the country’s international trade no longer had to pass through Vietnam’s Mekong Delta.
Today it is a bustling and ever expanding city, but its sandy bits are one step removed from the hubbub. The Serendipity Beach area is a sort of decompression chamber for backpackers, who flock here to rest up between travels and party through the night. With that being said Sihanoukville International Half Marathon is the place to be.
With the great success of the Angkor Wat International Half Marathon, we now extend this international event to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, Ochheuteal Beach in Sihanoukville, Cambodia. The Sihanoukville International Half Marathon is an event to protect the environment and for artificial limbs support to the land mine victims and disable people.
The serious matters of pollution and global warming have brought a very deep concern to us all.
