The VMM Challenge

An extraordinary mountain trail marathon

Vietnam Mountain Marathon is the result of a lifelong love of running and a fascination with Vietnam. The small dirt roads and narrow trails will take you through the beautiful mountain ranges of Hoang Lien National Park and valleys near Sapa that are usually closed territory to all but the few people living there.
Prepare for an extraordinary adventure – run 10km, 21km, 42km or 70km through the rice fields and speed through breath-taking valleys, cross bamboo bridges, bypass water buffalos, mountain pigs and cheering local children.
