The Ancient Khmer Path - 6 day, 230 km staged ultra

Press Release / 25.09.2012

GlobalLimits is a company based in Germany, but they bring an organizational team coming from three continents to this event. 

Organizers Stefan Betzelt (GlobalLimits Founder/Cambodia Race Director) and Chuck Walker (Cambodia Course Director) are on the ground this week, doing their final scout of the 230 km route - braving Cambodia’s rainy season on dirt bike. They plan on much better road conditions for runners, though, as they have set the race for late November, the beginning of Cambodia’s dry season.
The race itinerary runs from November 16th, 2012 (overnight in Phnom Penh, race check-in and city tour), then through November 18th to 23rd with six running stages. The daily distances are mostly between 32 and 45 km, with one long 65 km stage on Day 3, and an easier 16 km run, finishing by the temple in Angkor, on the final day.
Organizers promise a scenic route brimming with local culture, and nearly entirely on tracks and trails - mostly flat or rolling, with only two larger hills along the entire route. The registration fees include camping and permitting fees, as well as entry into the temples.
So far, 30 runners representing 16 countries have already registered for the race, including Spain’s legendary ultramarathoner Salvador Calvo Redondo - who set a record by winning the first three editions of the Racing the Planet Series in 2008, 2009 and 2010. (Organizers indicate that the race course and timing are designed for all levels of runners, including first-time ultramarathoners).
The event runs from November 16-24, 2012. The total distance over the six days is 230 km. For more info:
