The 20th Angkor Wat International Half Marathon took place on Sunday 6 December 2015 inside the ruins of Angkor Wat, a World Heritage site.

 

This internationally recognised half marathon raises relief for the victims of antipersonnel mines in Cambodia.  

 

With the support of many Japanese running enthusiasts, the Ankor Wat International Half Marathon NGO started the race in 1996, with participants from all over the world.

 

Attended by many landmine victims, as well as able bodied runners, this event has been held annually to give the victims courage and hope, as well as to appeal to the world to support the “ban on the use of antipersonnel mines.”

Runners from all over the world participate to support a ban on the manufacture and inhumane use of antipersonnel mines.

 

Entry fees and additional financial support foster independence among landmine victims by helping provide prosthetic limbs, social reintegration programmes, and supporting other relevant and needed programmes such as education and prevention of HIV / AIDS.
