These days our race is in most Vietnamese media as the Danish Embassy in Hanoi hosted an astonishing press conference on Wednesday, July 31. More than 60 journalists and 6-7 TV-stations attended the press conference and the many journalists were bursting with questions about Vietnam Mountain Marathon 2013 – the first of its kind to take place in Vietnam.

Topas Ecolodge is co-organizing the event with The Danish Embassy and Novo Nordisk, the world leading company in diabetes prevention, is sponsoring the event under the headline “Changing Diabetes”. Runners from more than 25 different countries have already signed up. We are looking for more runners from Vietnam.

We are very proud of all the attention the race receive and we look forward to see all you runners in two months.
