The fifth annual Run for Love organised by the Women and Sports Commission of the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia at Koh Pich yesterday, in the lead-up to Valentine’s Day, attracted hundreds of youngsters.
The President of the Commission Mok Vansitha said that, in the true spirit of love and peace, the run was a big hit, especially with the youth turnout and bigger numbers this year reflecting its growing popularity.
The event was supported by Phnom Penh Municipality and other federal and private agencies, with mobile services operator Smart as the main sponsor.
Along with the regular 5km run for under-17s and over 18-year-olds, there was also a short fun run for all ages and nationalities.
To brighten up the event, participants were encouraged to take part in a unique balloon game, as well as a form of tug of war and couples running in tandem.
