Marathons in Vietnam - Which One Will Inspire You?

If you are someone who likes to hit the open road and tackle unchartered territory, then the Vietnam Trail Marathon is a perfect choice. It is held in Moc Chau, Vietnam and is known as a jungle marathon. Make your way through hidden trails and venture farther than most people have ever gone, all while racing toward the finish line. 

Or, for the beach comber, the Halong Bay Heritage is for you. The route is a breathtaking 26.2 miles along the shoreline. While running, participants cross the Bai Chay Bridge, with mountains views abound. It is considered one of the most scenic trails on earth. International runners come from all around to join in a race across land that is termed "Heaven on Earth".

If flat and fast is your favorite, then see the city sites of Hanoi all on foot at the Hanoi International Heritage Marathon. Held in October, the weather is incredible, and you will get to see all of the greatest tourist sites while racing toward the yellow line. 

Whether you are a trailblazer or a road racer, there is no shortage of marathons in Vietnam to choose from. So, which one is right for you? Find the one that inspires you, and commit to make this your year!
