Angkor Wat Marathon 

Will I take part in next year’s Angkor Wat Half Marathon? Tempting. This year, I only came as a spectator and taking some photos 😀

I didn’t expect myself to actually witness a marathon at Angkor Wat itself. It was just coincidental that the Angkor Wat Marathon happened when I was still in Siem Reap, Cambodia. I did also bumped into two Bruneians there and I wished I was part of the spectacular event. Then again, I shall wait until next year as it will be the 20th edition of the Angkor Wat Marathon.

I also wanted to catch the sun rise over at Angkor Wat but I was lucky enough as it was kinda cloudy as well. Catching a near perfect sunrise there is pretty tricky. You just need to try your luck and it will be gone in a matter of minutes if you happen to catch one.

Nearly 8,000 runners participated in the event and that’s like more than double of Brunei’s normal marathon event. There are more than 78 countries participating in the marathon ranging from 3km, 10km to 21km categories. Back in 1996, there were only 654 runners from 14 countries.

For the first time ever, a Cambodian won the half marathon for the men’s category while a Singaporean won the 21km ladies’ category.


I came as early as 4:30am to get my tickets for Angkor Wat which costs a minimum of USD 20 which entitles you to a one day pass

The bag deposit area

It was great to see a full moon before the sunrise


Getting ready for the race

The only sunrise moment I could capture then



Really inspiring to see them participated in the 21km race

There were quite a few of them too

I was videoing the beginning of the race. I didn’t realise how many 21km runners there were and the video lasted over 5 minutes…..


I wonder if he survived the whole run in that suit

This is how they prepared the balloons

The bald lady told me she caught me taking a photo of them on the bike *lol*


Woohoo.. Nice to see a Bruneian flag there



Closing date 11th Dec

The Department of Co-Curriculum Education is set to hold “Century Run 2015” in January next year to celebrate the 100th year of formal education in the country and also to raise funds.

Director of Co-Curriculum Education of the Ministry of Education, Pg Suhaimi Pg Hj Bakar, briefed the media of the overall “Century Run” plan in a press conference recently at the Department of Co-Curriculum Education building in Lambak.

Pg Suhaimi said that “Century Run 2015” would replace the annual walkathon. He said the event, set on January 11, 2015 at the Haji Sir Muda Omar Ali Saifuddien Park, would be bigger and more fun-filled to bring together the officers and staff of the ministry in marking the 100 years of formal education and Teachers’ Day.

The Ministry of Education also aims for their officers and staff to strengthen their relationships.

Furthermore, the run also aims to raise awareness about the importance of a healthy body through exercises and to help reduce obesity among public servants and citizens of the Sultanate.

Another novelty for the “Century Run” is that this would be the first time in a decade where the participants would be asked to pay to be able to join.

Winners will also be awarded with medals.

Since the sporting event will be a fund-raiser, other ministries, prominent individuals, private groups and the general public are invited to contribute in the run.

Contributions from the participating runner will range from $20 to $30, depending on the category selected by the contributors.

The raised funds will be donated to Pusat Ehsan Al-Ameerah Hajah Maryam.

The run will have seven categories: open male and female running ten kilometres and will cost B$30, veteran male and female (45 years old and above) running five kilometres and will have to contribute $25, junior male and female (15 years old and below) running five kilometres and also has to be shell out $25, and a fun run for both male and female running three kilometres and will have to contibute $20.

Registration for the run is available on the website and fee should be paid before December 11 at the Department of Co-Curriculum offices in the four districts: Muara, Tutong, Belait and Temburong.

For more info, you can visit their website here. Text courtesy of The Brunei Times.


For Brunei Muara, the registration will open during lunch hours
