This Half Mountain Marathon is very hard! It climbs a beautiful valley, and once you are out on the route you will enjoy to pass by local villages, streams and forest. The first 7km climb Run/Hike might be hard, but once on the top you have a great view of thousands of rice fields 800m down in the valley. You will now run on a rough road in the altitude of +1500m with a direct view to Fansipan, 3143m and the highest summit in Indochina, before dropping down into the small rice fields paths. In the final stage you need to save energy to climb the second mountain via a small dirt trail, before descending to Topas Ecolodge and the finish line. Expect that your time is about double compared to a flat race! Therefore you must bring water and extra energy.
