Special VMM tours

The Vietnam Mountain Marathon is brought to you by Topas Travel, and whether you want to warm up before the race or relax straight after it, we’ve got you covered. If you’re an avid runner, delve into Hanoi with a running route of lakes, parks, and tree-lined boulevards. If you like some cycling mixed in, spend half a day crisscrossing the countryside surrounding the city. After the race you can keep the adventure going with a stand-up paddle board experience on a secluded lake. Alternatively, take a well-earned rest in a hidden mountain escape or on a cruise through LAN HA BAY, a less crowded Ha Long Bay.

Please email us info@vietnammountainmarathon.com for bookings or if you prefer to book another date for your group.

Hanoi Running Tour

Ready for a pre-race run? Get a fresh perspective on Hanoi while the crowds are still sleeping with a route of illustrious lakes, leafy parks, tree-lined boulevards, and Old Quarter backstreets.
