Course description

With a tough, steep first climb followed by more runnable trail, this half marathon offers a huge variety of trail with blossom orchards, minority villages, jungle, hills (including some very steep climbs!) and broad valleys finishing in a beautiful tea plantation.

Shortly after the start you will climb up through orchards before expansive views of the surrounding hills open up as the trail traverses the mountain side. You’ll soon find yourself in remote backcountry.

At CP1 you will turn off the 42k/70k route and descend into the peaceful village of Phieng Canh where you can expect to share the trails with kids herding cattle. After a tough and technical pair of climbs you will run through the Na Ka valley, famous for its endless peach blossom trees surrounded by mountain peaks.

Finally you will meet back up with the 42km and 70km runners and race to the area’s most beautiful tea plantation and our VTM finish line.
