Battambang Bamboo Road Race #1
Thanks to all participants and staff for supporting today's inaugural Battambang Bamboo Road Race. The winner was Viro Ma in 36:16 for 10k, with yours truly guiding him on the bike. Unfortunately, due to some misunderstandings with our still inexperienced staff, some runners lost their way and the times we took don't reflect their actual performance, therefore I will not publish them here.
However, right after the race I ran the improved course for the second edition, which will take place as soon as our race director, Muyngim Eng, is back in the country, so watch this place for more news about exciting events in Battambang.
Thanks to Daun Penh Company for sponsoring the Pro vida mineral water for our race in Battambang!

2nd Kep International Half-Marathon February 21.2016
Report by Jill Hamill, Photos courtesy of Vero Ma
Well done to Hiroyuki Anno and his team, who organised yesterday's 2nd Kep Half Marathon. The course was well marked and very scenic. The volunteers were well organised and the aid stations were at regular intervals and manned professionally. The race started on time and the award ceremony was conducted promptly. The 21km was competitive with some really strong finish times. Very impressed by Ma Viro's excellent performance.
Racing in Cambodia is really developing. Please consider joining races here to build up the running community further.
