Testimony of Nathalie David, President of Casiopeea 

“Participating in the ANGKOR Ultra Trail in January is a real week of break between friends, amateurs, enthusiasts of running or Nordic walking.

During this week, you will discover both the culture of the Khmers with the visit of the ANGKOR site, the history of a people who knows peace only for 20 years and the Asian way of life. In short, you are travelling through time, space and cultures.”

Testimony of Véronique Messina, the winner of the UTA 128

“A top organization! The paths allow you to immerse yourself in the Cambodian countryside, through the forests, jungle, the yellow and dry rice fields at this time of the year, the villages with houses on stilts, pagodas, and the millennial temples”….
