Here you will be able to cheer on some of the runners and enjoy lunch surrounded by spectacular scenery. Pick-up time: 7:30AM.
At Ban Hang Finish Village
All distances finish at the Race Village, Ban Hang, on the edge of the Nature Reserve. This is a very remote village and all the homestays will play host to our runners, so this will become a unique trail running settlement for one weekend only! Here you can enjoy a light lunch, buy drinks and support the later runners. In the evening those who have booked the package will enjoy a BBQ Buffet Dinner to the sounds of the DJ music and a bonfire will be lit after dark.
Transport back to Pu Luong Retreat/Home/Eco Garden
For those who do not stay at Ban Hang, buses run throughout the afternoon back to your accommodation’s bus stop. Buses depart hourly from 12PM to 10PM.
*Note that Saturday dinner is at Ban Hang Race Village.
For the those who cannot get enough of running, it is possible to head out for a recovery run from the village in the morning, or simply relax before the buses depart for Hanoi.
8:00 AM and 10:00 AM: Departure for Hanoi.
1:30PM and 3:30 PM: Arrive in Hanoi at the Hanoi Opera House.
