Soon after the start you will be racing along dirt trails past small villages with mountains and golden rice fields all around.




Following the small village of Ban Nua a rolling section on a quiet, concrete route includes plenty of climbing as you head deeper into the nature reserve with thick jungle on either side.

Having passed by Ban Cao Hoong village the route arrives at the tiny settlement of Ban Kit. From here on the race goes truly remote.

You will head onto small off-road trails climbing to up to Thanh Cong village and then a tough jungle section follows with some narrow, technical trail.

Before reaching Kho Muong you will be rewarded with an utterly spectacular view of a valley ringed with incredibly steep, jungled limestone mountains. During the end of October, the colours of the rice fields are at their very best, so the knockout views from the lookout point will make all but the most fiercely competitive stop for a photo opportunity.

The descent down to the valley here is very technical and will require care. Once down in the valley a flat section of beautiful trail leads through the picturesque village of Kho Muong from where you will face a long final climb before a short hilly tarmac section.

After descending back down into the Nature Reserve you will reach another small settlement and from here you are on the finishing stretch of trail through a breathtaking valley. After crossing some bamboo and wood bridges you will be on the home run to the Ban Hang Race Village where a well deserved meal and the finish party await.
