Runners about to enter the Ancient Khmer Path in Cambodia
And so we have already arrived at the final event of the 2015 Asia Trail Master series. GlobalLimits' Ancient Khmer Path will close the curtain next weekend (5 December) when runners enter Angkor, the famous temple site in Cambodia. This is a 6-day stage race in its 4th edition, and there's still a lot of points up for grabs for the 2015 ranking.
The terrain of the race is quite flat and therefore very runnable, which makes this race in the GlobalLimits catalogue different from the other two events in Sri Lanka and Bhutan. As always, founder and race director Stefan Betzelt is doing his utmost to ensure all participants not only have a great run, but a very exciting time in Cambodia in general.
The race begins on Sunday in Phnom Penh with a 30km long stage first stage. The longest stage is the third, when we are talking proper ultra running over more than 60 km. Throughout the week, runners will pass numerous authentic temples, waterfalls and bamboo forests.
Whereas the top of our ranking seems fixed, a few participants might be able to still squeeze themselves into the top 10. A number of runners will also score their 3rd Grandmaster point in this event, which means only 3 to go in 2016 to obtain the honourary title and shield!
We will be updating our social media pages throughout the week as news comes in from Cambodia. Stay tuned!
