Qualification: To run VMM 100km, you must have previously completed at least one 50km+ ultra mountain marathon* (not a road event) before the race. The race must be an official race, not a virtual race / club run.

On registration, please provide a URL link to your qualifying result (VTS results page, ITRA results page, or similar). If you plan to complete a qualifying race between now and race day, you must send us your result by 12/10/2021.

Failure to provide evidence of a qualifying past performance will result in refusal of entry.

*Please note we will assess your submitted performance for its level of difficulty and the organiser’s decision is final. A GPX track that is not an official race is not sufficient for qualification.

Course description

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 2021, 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!
