Vietnam Trail Series by Topas

Our series is comprised of 3 popular Topas races: Vietnam Trail Marathon, Vietnam Mountain Marathon, and Vietnam Jungle Marathon.



Vietnam Trail Series is the result of a love of mountain running and a fascination with Vietnam. It is organised by Topas Group, adventure travel experts since 1973.

Our Vietnam races began in 2013, when we launched the Vietnam Mountain Marathon, now one of Asia’s largest trail races with more than 5,500 runners.

The original idea was to create a race way beyond the usual trail run with a route that led runners through some of Vietnam’s most beautiful scenery populated by the countries many ethnic groups.

Our two other races, Vietnam Jungle Marathon and Vietnam Trail Marathon were founded on the same ideals.

Join us for Vietnam Trail Series races and prepare for some extraordinary adventures!



Topas Vietnam Trail Series has now given over USD400,000 to charity thanks to the donations that come from every long distance (from 21k) race fee.

Through these donations, Topas has funded the work of Operation Smile, Newborns Vietnam, Blue Dragon, Hue Help and Sapa o Chau. We also carry out local projects in villages along the route, for example a school house has been constructed to vastly improve the education conditions for children living in the mountains.
