The Thansur Bokor International Half Marathon and Bike Race will return to the renowned Bokor mountain of Kampot province next year, organisers told reporters during a press conference at Sokha Club hotel on Monday evening.

The inaugural event, held on October 26-27 along the mountain’s newly constructed road, attracted 577 runners and 104 cyclists with participation slated to increase ten-fold, according to organisers.

A total of US$4,000 raised from entry fees has been donated to Kantha Bopha Children’s Hospital, confirmed Thansur Bokor Resort general manager Michael Brabsche.
