The seventh Sihanoukville annual half-marathon will be held on March 11 in the beautiful beach town of Sihanoukville with organisers expecting an improvement on last year’s numbers.
Vath Chamroeun, the Secretary-General of the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia, said so far the number of registered entries numbered more than 1,000, including nearly 200 foreigners from a total of 28 participating countries. Japan had most entrants.
The secretary-general expects this figure to increase to more than 2,000 and is likely to beat the 2017 edition.
In last year’s races, Ma Viro won the 6th Sihanoukville International Half Marathon, while Lois Woodward of Great Britain took the top prize in the women’s category.
