10km race winner Kieng Sam On (right) and runner-up Mok Bunthoeun compete in the second annual Pursat fun run on Sunday. Organised by the Department of Education, Youth and Sport and Briton Steven Harknett, who spent four years working in the region, the day's events included a 5.5km race, a 10km race and wheelchair and amputee races. The event raised $650, which will go toward the purchase of sports equipment for local schools and the transport costs for Pursat's top runners to compete in the Angkor half-marathon, being held in Siem Reap this December.
