ULTRA TRAIL OF ANGKOR 2019 – January 19 & 20 – CAMBODIA
Angkor’s unique ultra-trail: an excellent 2019 vintage!

Communiqué de presseOn Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 January, one of the most original trails in the world took place: the Ultra-trail from Angkor to Siem Reap in Cambodia! Nearly 1000 participants, thirsty for kilometers, from 16 to 128, set off in the middle of the unique UNESCO World Heritage Site: Angkor Temples Complex.
Organized by SDPO and Phoenix Voyages Group, this 4th edition was once again a great success, offering trailers an unforgettable experience!

This year again, more and more runners have gone to the end of the effort, motivated by the beauty of the experience and the spectacle that awaited them: running in the middle of temples, passing through villages made up of simple wooden houses on stilts, under the encouragement of Cambodians, with children running with athletes: this is the Adventure with a great A of the Angkor trail!
The UTA is the only race authorized to run this cultural gem and it is the only ultra race in Cambodia, approved by the Ministry of Culture and the Cambodian National Olympic Committee.

1000 runners of 42 nationalities
About 1000 runners from 42 countries launched themselves more or less early on January 19, from 4 am to 9 am, to attack the paths of the extraordinary site of the temples from the Elephants’ terrace, passing around the roots engulfing the Tah Prohm temple or through the Bayon gate, along the rice fields or by taking the French Bridge… An unprecedented experience that the participants will not soon forget!

A trail among the biggest
After only 4 years of existence, Angkor’s Ultra Trail is now one of the most beautiful races in Asia. Set up by SDPO and Jean Claude Le Cornec with the technical support of Phoenix Voyages, co-organizer, Angkor’s Ultra Trail is one of the major trails and is thus one of the events that allows you to earn points in the ITRA and UTMB rankings.
The winner of this 4rth Edition is a Catalan rider, accustomed to international podiums, Amiel Marc PUIG !
