Course description

This beautiful 10km mountain route is perfect for new mountain runners. It is not too tough, but still challenging enough to make you proud when you cross the finish line.

Soon after the start from Lac village, you will run through rice terraces and villages of Thai people before climbing up through dense forest to a lookout. Here you will be rewarded with a stunning panoramic view across the valley.

After CP1 at Na Meo village, you will hit a short climb across the hillside to join the course of 70km, 50km.

The last section brings you down to the quintessential beauty of the main Mai Chau valley. Here we will have a finish line in the heart of the community, with music, fire, food and the good trail vibes our races are famous for.

We look forward to welcoming you to Vietnam Ultra Marathon first edition on The Trails of Mai Chau.

Please read the Finish Area information here.
