The next Angkor Wat half marathon takes place on 6 December 2015. This internationally recognized 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, this great international race takes place inside the ruins of Angkor Wat, a World Heritage Site, and 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”, attracting runners from all over the world.



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



Thanks to international support from around the world, both healthy and disabled people are inspired and encouraged by the competition, greatly benefiting many communities throughout Cambodia.
