This is an extremely hard ultra-trail marathon covering all types of landscapes of the mountain range. After a flat start you descend in darkness down into a beautiful valley, across a river running from Fansipan, through rice paddies and into a small village and CP1.  

At the end of the valley comes a seriously hard and long climb up through rice fields to CP3. New for 2019, you will then continue to climb up 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 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!
