We’re back!

 

We are thrilled to inform you that the Angkor Wat International Half Marathon will be held on 2nd January 2022, so is the #RunWithFriends fundraiser! This is a great opportunity to (re)discover the Angkor Temples from a unique perspective while raising money for our education support programs for marginalized children and youth highly impacted by the COVID crisis!

You can register to the race through the website here or at the organiser’s office in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. Last day to register is 1st December 2021, so hurry and sign up for a running blast 🙂 Decide which distance you would like to take part in. There’s a race to suit everyone: 3km, 5km, 10km or 21km.

Would you like to #RunWithFriends and fundraise for us? Let us know here ??

For all fundraisers there’ll be chances to win some fantastic prizes!

Friends-International is not an official participant to the Angkor Wat marathon. All fundraising initiatives are a personal choice

WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN US

Run for a cause

Despite increasing development across Southeast Asia, much of the population continues to be marginalized from society. Last year, Friends-International supported 84,000 children, youth and their families to go to school, to attend vocational training and to find employment.

Scratch off your bucket list

Whether you want to run amongst the temples of Angkor Wat, in the frenzy of Bangkok, in the mind-blowing streets of Singapore or by the lovely Geneva lake, that’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

Win amazing prizes

Be one of the best fundraisers and get the chance to win amazing prizes: a night for two in a luxurious boutique hotel, restaurant & massage vouchers, products from our stores and more surprises to be revealed!
