Join Team BabyTree Angkor Wat International Half Marathon...
If this isn't on your bucket list yet, then it should be. Tick it off now!
Join Team BabyTree in running the Angkor Wat International Half Marathon in Seam Reap Cambodia Dec 4th 2011.
Built over 800 years ago, Angkor Wat is the world's largest religious monument and at its height, was the capital of the Khmer empire with a population of over 1 million people (London at the same time had a population of 80,000). But Angkor Wat wasn't the only temple built then, sprawled through the forest and jungles are countless other equally breathtaking temples with their own story to tell.
You will be running through these hallowed grounds where god-kings once ruled and where magic and mystique still pervades if you are lucky enough to be able to perceive it.
Team BabyTree will be raising funds for BabyTree of course and the Australian Cancer Research Foundation. We hope to raise $10,000AUD.
