Hillside races to return bigger, better next year

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.
