VTM - THE TRAILS OF MOC CHAU

Our VTM routes are the result of countless days of research, deep into the hills. The course covers a huge variety of trails and landscapes, taking runners to wild areas rarely visited by anyone but locals. 

A highlight of VTM is running through the area’s famous orchards filled with either stunning white and pink blossom, or ripe fruits, depending on the season.   

Share trails with local farmers, horses, donkeys, buffalo, wild pigs and more. Run Vietnam Trail Marathon and discover hidden trails, venturing way beyond the usual paths.

THE PROFILES

You can see the elevation profiles for all the routes to help you select your distance.  

GPX files will also be sent to all runners one week prior to race day.

DISTANCES

VTM 5km & 10km

Ideal for newbies and those looking for a shorter, fast race, our 5km and 10km have both been designed to include Moc Chau’s beautiful orchards and stunning tea fields.

VTM 21km

A stunning route including orchards, jungle, grand vistas and minority villages. After an initial steep hill, this 21k is very runnable, with just a couple of short, technical climbs. It’s a great first 21k for newer runners, or a potentially fast course for mountain runners aiming for speed. 

Elevation gain: 850m

VTM 42km

Join our marathon distance and you will venture through beautiful, remote, hidden villages that are inaccessible by car. The course includes everything from runnable paths to technical sections rarely used, even by locals. Experience orchards, jungle, farmland, tea plantations and a highlight: the famous welcome of the checkpoint 5 villagers!

Elevation gain: 1,900m

VMM 70km

This ultra has everything that Moc Chau has to offer. Join our 70k and you will experience the most remote and the most challenging terrain of VTM. This is a hard ultra, but the beauty of the orchards, jungle and wild nature combined with the warm welcome of villagers make it one of the most rewarding you will ever complete.
