Imagine running through one of the world’s most famous temples to help transform the lives of women and children who have been trafficked or abused.

Rally your family and friends to sponsor you and help raise funds and awareness to support Hagar’s work combating trafficking, slavery and abuse; directly helping those who have survived these practices to rebuild their lives.

While in Siem Reap, you will have the opportunity to learn more about Hagar’s work, meet our staff in Cambodia and run alongside survivors who we have supported through their recovery, all while exploring an incredible city and staying active!

ABOUT THE MARATHON

The Angkor Wat International Half Marathon was started in 1996 as an appeal to the world to support the ban on the use of antipersonnel mines. Runners from all over the world participate in this event and entry fees continue to support those who have been injured by landmines.

The marathon offers the chance to run on an incredibly unique course in a UNESCO world heritage listed area with ancient temples and trees – bring your camera and snap some photos along the way!

There are three distances; 3km family run/walk, 10km road race or 21km half marathon

Each category starts and finishes at the iconic Angkor Wat temple in Siem Reap and follows a flat course – so there are no killer hills!


ABOUT US

At Hagar we are committed to the whole journey.

The whole journey starts with a survivor, an individual who has experienced severe trauma as a result of slavery, trafficking or abuse. From the moment that individual enters our care, we work with them to assess what their needs are and offer a full range of intensive services.

We can provide a safe place to live, counselling, case management, legal support, education and economic empowerment. Through your support, Hagar seeks to rebuild trust and resilience, creating opportunities for each individual to not simply survive, but thrive!

Here at Hagar we believe the whole journey is every step taken by a survivor towards healing.

HIGHLIGHTS FROM LAST YEAR

“Our girls take part in many overseas tours and service learning projects, the Run for Freedom with Hagar is by far the most transformative for our students. When preparing to travel to Cambodia Students learn about the history of the region, the culture and effects of war.

Our students were particularly interested in learning about how they can contribute to ending modern day slavery and ensure their future travel and volunteering in the region is ethical and not exploitative”.
