VIETNAM TRAIL SERIES

Vietnam Trail Series by Topas

New for 2019, Vietnam Trail Series (VTS) is comprised of three popular Topas races Vietnam Trail MarathonVietnam Jungle Marathon and Vietnam Mountain MarathonWe are proud that Topas races have gained a reputation for being organised by passionate, professional crew in beautiful locations with challenging routes.

AN EXTRAORDINARY MOUNTAIN TRAIL SERIES

Vietnam Trail Series is the result of a genuine love of running and a fascination with Vietnam.
It all started back in 2013, when we launched the Vietnam Mountain Marathon with about 200 runners attending. The 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 and create encounters with remote mountain tribes.

This core idea has developed the Vietnam Mountain Marathon to one of Southeast Asia’s largest trail races with more than 3.000 runners and two other races founded on the same ideals: a Trail Marathon and a Jungle Marathon.

In 2018 we are proud to introduce Vietnam Trail Series – prepare for some extraordinary adventures!

A passion for the outdoors

Vietnam Trail Series is organised by Topas Group, founded in 1973. We are passionate about the outdoors and our events are organised by adventure lovers for adventure lovers.

We founded Vietnam Mountain Marathon (VMM) in 2013 and Vietnam Jungle Marathon was added in 2017. The first Vietnam Trail Marathon in 2019 completes the Vietnam Trail Series.

Giving back

Our series support development in the local area as all long distance runners donate US$20 to charitable work via their entry fee. Over the years these donations have gone to both Sapa O Chau, a local organization that provides education and vocational training for minority youths, Operation Smile, and Newborns Vietnam. Funds are also used for 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.
