Meanwhile, TFC president Kong Rithy Chub noted that their original maximum number of participants had been set at 400.

The U19 category for both boys and girls will feature a run of 2.5 kilometres, a cycle ride of 10km and then another run of 2.5km.

The 18-40 class for men and women will have a 5km run, a 21km ride and then a 2.5km run. The over-40s men’s race will be competed over the same distances as the U19 legs.
