This is a very hard but stunning Mountain Marathon for the experienced runner who is looking for a tough challenge. The trails will lead you off the beaten track to areas which are rarely visited by anyone but locals.

First you will warm up by running uphill a few kilometers on a remote asphalt road before heading onto a new uphill trail section for 2021. You will pass through some farmland and rose gardens before gaining serious altitude on trails at around 2,300m.

In good weather you will have stunning panoramic views of the mountains, including Fansipan. You will also be looking down at Vietnam’s highest road pass way, way beneath you!

After descending on trail with amazing rice terrace 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. Here you will experience yet more updated trail with incredible valley and rice paddy views.  

After CP7 the infamous Silverstone climb on steep trail awaits, but your reward at the top 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 stunning welcome from the other runners at Topas Ecolodge, located on a beautiful hilltop. Here you can relax and enjoy the feeling of triumph together with all the other mountain runners.

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.
