Course description

This beautiful and relatively flat 5km route is ideal for families and newbies, offering a chance to explore Mai Chau’s beautiful landscapes and local culture together.

Soon after the start in Lac village, you will run through beautiful rice paddies. The course then heads onto a small, rocky trail which is a good introduction to technical trails.  You will then join up with the longer ditsnace runners for a section. Then you pass through another small, pretty village with traditional stilt houses. Your route finishes in the heart of the Lac village, where you can enjoy the music, fire, food and the good trail vibes our races are famous for.

Please read the Finish Area information here.

If you run with another person’s bib you endanger yourself and others as the organiser will not have your medical records, or your emergency contact.
