New World 5k

New World 5k is a free, fun and friendly social event. Walk, jog, run or just have a chat. All ages and abilities are welcome!

We also have a shorter 2 mile (3.2km) option for those who don't want to or can't currently complete 5km!


It's on every Saturday at 7:00am


Meet at the park inside Borey New World, Wat Samroung Andet (Phnom Penh, Cambodia). See the Course Page for more details.

Is it timed? Is it a race?

The event is timed and results are recorded. See the Results Page for previous results.

...but it's not a race. There are no prizes for finishing first, and you don't have to be a serious athlete to participate. If you want to race yourself, come every week and try to improve on your best time.

Is this a parkrun?

No, we love parkrun® and we'd love to see it come to Cambodia but this is not an official parkrun® event! On the other hand, yes, the format of this event is heavily inspired by parkun®.
