Course description

This run is the perfect introduction to trail running. The start line is surrounded by beautiful hills and orchards, making it one of the most beautiful start areas of all Topas races.

From here, you will follow a flat trail to the pretty Hmong village of Phieng Canh, with its traditional houses and welcoming locals. A small climb will then bring you to a beautiful, remote valley to run through blossom trees, then through the famous Na Ka orchards.

VTM Blossom Female Runner

Your final small climb through a rocky landscape leads you toward the famed VTM finish line in the Heart Shaped Tea Hill. At the finish you can enjoy the party atmosphere, great food and beautiful views together with your fellow runners!
