Race date: Sunday, 23 September 2018

Start and Finish: Sapa Town Square

Participate in this year’s biggest public run in Sapa and race against the local Black Hmong, Red Dao and Tay minorities. Maybe you watched your friends and families run  the Mountain Marathon on Saturday and now want to show them how to run 10km! Or maybe you just cannot get enough competition and want to combine a Saturday run of 21km, 42km, 70km or 100km with a 10km run?

Look out as the local runners are eager to compete with the international competitors! The route starts from central Sapa Town and then heads down the main street, passes the local minority market and soon you are out of town. Now run 2.5km down the valley on paved road and drop into the famous Hoang Lien National Park and its beautiful scenery with rice fields, rivers and trails beaten by buffaloes. Save some energy for the final challenge… a climb of 500m just before the finish! It is hard, but beautiful! VMM provide 2 checkpoints with water & bananas.
