Angkor Wat Half Marathon and Bike Race and Rally

Registration is open for the 2009 edition of the Angkor Wat Half Marathon and Bike Race and Rally. Last year’s event drew nearly 2600 participants from 43 countries. This year’s events will take place on December 5 and 6 with the following competitive and fun events:

* Half Marathon Men/Women

* 21 km Wheel Chair

* 10 km Men/Women

* 5 km Women

* 3 km Family Run

* Bike Races

* Bike Rally

The event is not only a lot of fun but is also a great fund-raising event with proceeds going to various charities helping those in need of artificial limbs and at-risk youth. As you can see there are events for serious runners and for families both in the running and biking categories. One of the bike rallies is a 30 KM guided fun-ride. Bikes are available for rental so you don’t even have to shlep your own. You can participate, watch the fun or become a pledge sponsor.
