Following hot on the wet heels of a successful Aquathlon event last weekend, the Cambodian Triathlon Federation (CTF) will host its third Duathlon running and cycling race on June 1 at Diamond Island.
The event, rebranded this year as the Samdech Techo Hun Sen Cup, is being held in cooperation with the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia (NOCC), the Ministry of Information, the Cambodian Vehicle Federation (CVF) and the Phnom Penh municipality.
It will also help mark the International Day for Protection of Children. According to CTF secretary- general Ngin Panha, there will be two age categories (U18 and 18-40) for athletes of both genders to compete in, while the over 40s will be male only.
The U18 and over 40s races feature a run of 2.5 kilometres followed by a ride of 10km and then another 2.5km run.
The 18-40 section involves a 5km run, 20km ride and 2.5km run. Registrations can be made at the NOCC and the CVF headquarters until May 28, with an entrance fee set at 10,000 riel ($2.50) for locals and 40,000 riel for foreigners.
Student entrants will not be charged and all participants receive a T-shirt and free drinks and food. For more details, phone 012 797 944, 016 911 745 or 015 822 566.
