This is a seriously tough ultra marathon that covers every type of terrain the area has to offer. After running down into the Ban Ho area and along the Nam Cang River you will climb to the My Son village of the small mountain tribe of Xa Pho.  After an extremely challenging climb you will reach the end of the hard 30km loop and join the VMM 70 route.

Very soon you will experience sunrise running on the edge of the extremely beautiful and remote rice terraces following a river running from Fansipan mountain, the highest peak of Indochina.

After crossing the river the running is less challenging for a while, but at the end of the valley there is a seriously hard and long climb up through rice fields to CP3. New for 2019, you will then continue to ascend on beautiful trail to the new highest point on the course at around 2,300m. In good weather you will have stunning panoramic views of the mountains here.

After descending with more amazing views to Ta Phin (CP4) you will head onto more new trail on your way to CP6 where you will meet up with the 21k runners for yet more updated trail with awesome valley and rice paddy views.  

After CP7 the infamous Silverstone climb on steep trail awaits, but your reward is one of the best vistas of the course. Then it’s time for the final hard downhill and the race to the finish line and the warm welcome from other mountain runners at Topas Ecolodge, located on a beautiful hilltop. Here you can relax and enjoy the feeling of triumph!
