Cambodian Children’s Trust Challenge in May

Shared by |tags, ,

Help break the cycle of poverty in the Battambang region of Cambodia by lacing up your running shoes and signing your name up for the Cambodian Children's Trust Challenge on May 19.

The event will be held in the New Norfolk Wetlands area, southeast of Tasmania, with participants to take part in a 12km run, 10km kayak and 18km mountain bike!

The Cambodian Children's Trust is a non-profit, non-governmental organisation that aims to create lasting change in the lives of Cambodian people by helping to stop the poverty cycle.

Get your group of three sorted for the event, with the proceeds to benefit the Cambodian Children's Trust.

The runners will kickstart the multi-sport event, taking a picturesque route that begins from the caravan park on the Esplanade to weave through locations such as the scenic tourist walking track and past the wetlands.

Kayakers will work their arms on the waters of the River Derwent, paddling upstream to the New Norfolk bridge, around footings, downstream to a boy near the Norske Skog Newsprint Mill and then paddling back upstream to return to the start.

The mountain biker will then complete the final leg of the event, doing three loops of the run track and then running down the steps to the Esplanade finish line.
