42km - Full Marathon

42km | +2,000 m

Race date: Saturday, 21 September 2019

Race start: 7:30 AM

Bus depart to start: please see the program for your package

Qualification: Open to experienced runners at least 18 years old on race day, who have completed at least 1 marathon.

This is a very hard but stunning Mountain Marathon for the experienced runner who is looking for a real challenge. The trail will lead you of the beaten track to areas which are rarely visited by others than locals. First we warm up by running uphill a few kilometers on a remote asphalt road before turning into an old path down the slippery jungle on a trail connecting villages in two valleys. This is the land of both Black Hmong and Red Dao minorities.

We will run through their small wooden village gates and hopefully see that it is season for harvesting of rice. The first climb is serious and will require fast walking for some. The trail goes round a mountain covered by rice fields and a forest and we drop down into the limestone valley of Ta Phin and soon we are connected to the half marathon route when crossing the main road. Expect your will be about double compared to a flat race! Therefore you must bring water and extra energy. If you are still racing at 5:30 PM and do not have a headlamp, you will be cut off.
