The Women and Sport Commission in association with the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia (NOCC) are organising this year’s Valentine’s Day Fun Run aimed at the youth on February 14 on Diamond Island (Koh Pich).
Vath Chamroeun, the secretary-general of the NOCC, announced yesterday that the Fun Run will be staged over 3 kilometres and 5 kilometres, along with a paired event over 200 metres where the participants will have their legs tied together as in a "three-legged race".
The run is for various age groups from as young as 8 years old to over 31 as individuals, while there is also a provision for groups to run in a relay fashion.
"The run has been designed to reflect the true Valentine’s Day spirit, which is more unconditional love for each other.
It was very successful last year, and this year as many as 1,000 boys and girls have so far registered for the event, which is very encouraging," Chamroeun said.
The event is being supported by Mobile Phone operator Smart and beverage company Sponsor.
