Angkor Wat International Half Marathon has been held since December 1996 at one of the most famous heritage sites in the world, as designated by UNESCO in 1992.

 

The 17th Anniversary Event will be held at the Angkor Wat area on Sunday 2nd December amongst the famous Angkor Wat ruins. 

The Angkor Archaeological Park located in northern Cambodia, is one of the most important archaeological sites in South-East Asia. Stretching over 400 sq km, including forested area, Angkor contains the magnificent remains of several capitals of the Khmer Empire, from the 9th to the 15th century CE.

 

The temples of the Angkor area number over one thousand, ranging in scale from nondescript piles of brick rubble scattered through rice fields, to the magnificent Angkor Wat, said to be the world's largest single religious monument. Many of the temples at Angkor have been restored, and together, they comprise the most significant site of Khmer architecture. Visitor numbers approach two million annually.

There will be a pre-events bike race on Saturday 1 December.
