In Brief: Half marathon route set

THE National Olympic Comittee of Cambodia (NOCC) has finalised the route for its Phnom Penh Thmei Half Marathon, to be run on June 27. The start and finish points share a location near the Samrong Andeth pagoda in Phnom Penh Thmei commune, and the 4-kilometre route will wind its way around the area’s traffic-free zone featuring numerous garden paths. “The environment is very good for long distance running in that area which we hope to develop as a tourist site,” noted NOCC General Secretary Vath Chamroeun. “So far we have received nearly 100 entries from foreigners based here – mostly expats – and we expect about 250 to 300 local people including students to turn up for this race.” The sports official added that the event was a trial for a proposed full marathon in the capital next year.
