MESSAGE FROM THE CO-CHAIR OF TGF

2020 has been a tough year for the Chi Kraeng district that TGF operates in. In addition to COVID-19, villagers were battling with floods, food security, medical access, and clean water. More than ever before, our work towards lifting Cambodia’s vulnerable communities must go on.

That is why although this year was supposed to be our 3rd Cambodia Run Challenge, due to COVID-19 and the challenge of travelling into Cambodia, we have brought it to Hong Kong on Sunday, 13 December 2020. To raise funds, Mark Ferguson, Alex Reinert, and Matt Pocock will be running around Hong Kong island (60km) and swimming around Middle Island (2.5km).

All funds raised will go to TGF’s 4 programmes — health, income generation, water and sanitation, and education.Your donations will create sustainable change for the impoverished rural communities we work with in Cambodia.

On behalf of the TGF Board of Trustees, staff, the runners, and communities in Chi Kraeng district, your continued support means the world to us. We wouldn’t be able to make the impact we do without you.

Brad Levitt,
Co-Chair of TGF

MEET THE RUNNERS

Mark Ferguson

CAMBODIA RUN Challenge Founder

A veteran of ultra-marathons, the Cambodia Run Challenge is the brainchild of Mark. The initiative came about at a fundraising dinner held by TGF in 2016, where he learned about the urgent need to support rural Cambodian communities in breaking free from the poverty cycle. Born in Scotland, he moved to Asia in 2008. He was a former professional cricket player for Hong Kong and Scotland.

Matt Pocock

CAMBODIA RUN Challenge Co-Founder

Matt caught “the running bug” when he participated in the London Marathon for charity in 2007. He completed his first ultramarathon in 2011 and has since completed races of various lengths all over the world, including the HK100, the 250km Gobi March, and The Nepal Action Asia 100km. Originally from the UK, Matt moved to Hong Kong in 2008. He is the Co-founder of the Cambodia Run Challenge.

Alex Reinert

CAMBODIA RUN 2019

Alex took part in his first Cambodia Run Challenge in 2019. Since then, he has been dubbed ‘Fast & Furious Alex’ — finishing first for every leg of the marathon, for 7 days straight! Alex, the global nomad, has lived in Europe, the UK and Asia. He finished 2nd in the 2016 Ironman World Championship, conquered the Gobi 250km, Atacama 250km, and the Hong Kong Cold Standard.
