Qualification: Open to experienced runners at least 18 years old on race day. To run VTM 70km, you must have previously completed at least 1 full marathon (FM) or longer event before the race. Please provide the link to your official qualifying result. If you plan to run a qualifying race between now and VTM, you may send us your qualifying result no later than 15-12-2021. The race must be an official race, not a virtual race / club run.
Failure to do so less than 30 days prior to race day will result in refusal of entry and no refund.
With plenty of gain, this is a tough ultra marathon that should only be undertaken by experienced runners.
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 – in this area the ethnic minority settlements are definitely not named on Google maps!
After 19km you will head into a section that only the 70k runners will see and which is very much off the beaten path. Here you will ascend to the highest point on the course before running down to CP3.
After joining the 42k runners in the village of Ban Doi (CP5) your tired legs face another major climbing challenge up to CP6 in Pa Ken 2 village. Soon after this you will turn onto another exclusive 70k section including many blossom orchards before you head to the stunning finish line tea plantation.
