Vietnam Trail Marathon
Welcome to VTM, the third race in the Vietnam Trail Series by Topas.
Following the Vietnam Mountain Marathon in Sapa and Pu Luong’s Vietnam Jungle Marathon, the Vietnam Trail Marathon is an opportunity to discover the majestic, hidden trails of Moc Chau and venture far beyond the paths of those before you.
Moc Chau is an area famous in Vietnam for its tea plantations and peach blossom. VTM will take place at the very height of peach blossom season, creating a running spectacle like no other.
The route we have selected is the result of our research deep into the hills. The course is almost entirely very runnable trail covering a huge variety of landscapes. You will discover ethnic minority villages that no car can access hidden deep in rugged terrain. You will through flower fields, tea plantations and orchards. You will share the trails with local farmers, horses, donkeys, buffalo, wild pigs and more.
The VTM route offers a different running challenge to both VMM and VJM. There is still plenty of elevation gain, but it is achieved over smaller hills rather than with monster climbs.
As a result, the overall champ of the Vietnam Trail Series will have to be a very well-rounded trail runner!
