The Khmer Empire Marathon, Cambodia

Sun 5 August 2018

11.5449 104.892

It is known as the Angkor Empire Marathon, with more than 3000 runners gathered in front of the Angkor Wat temple for the start of the 5th Angkor Empire Marathon under a cloudy sky and a temperature of 26C. Just less than half of the field was made up of foreign runners who came from 50 different countries. The full marathon started at 04.30 and headed through the quiet town streets in the early morning before turning back towards the site of the ancient temples at 16km. Ma Viro, the first runner passed the 25.5km turn point at 6:30:44 near the Banteay Samre Temple. The course then passes by 5.5km of green rice and through the old village before entering the world heritage site again at 31km. Viro finished with a time of 3:41.38, followed by Kawamoto Koji 2.5 minutes later. The race is a charity event and does not support an elite field but the organisers are appealing to more professional runners to participate.
