Join VPBANK Hanoi Marathon

The VPBank Hanoi Marathon is a major and official marathon of Vietnam which has been held annually in October in Hanoi. The VPBank Hanoi Marathon has been accredited by the IAAF, officially certified by Grade A Measurers of AIMS and affiliated with the Vietnam Athletics Federation (VAF). The marathon became an AIMS official member in 2019.

Taking place for the first time under the name of Hanoi International Heritage Marathon, the 2018 race has immediately garnered the attention of nearly 3,000 athletes and running enthusiasts from Vietnam and all over the world.

In 2019 the municipal authority declared the competition "the Official International Marathon of Hanoi", seeking to place the event on the world's map of major marathons, along with those in Berlin, Boston, Chicago, London, New York City and Tokyo. The turnout has doubled to 6,000 runners from more than 50 nationalities.

In 2020, as Vietnam took the chairmanship of ASEAN, the race has been selected as the official marathon of the 2020 ASEAN Chairmanship and launched with a new name: "VPBank Hanoi Marathon ASEAN 2020".

The race has a loop course, starting and finishing at Hoan Kiem Lake, Hanoi's centermost landmark. It is a one-of-a-kind event that serves as both a traditional marathon, as well as a unique tour of the six major districts and almost all historical and cultural landmarks of the Old Quarter of Hanoi, allowing the runners to discover the peaceful, charming, and historic city with 11 heritages and landmarks they can’t miss.

Course Highlights

Hanoi Heritage Marathon is a perfect flat course, which will lead you to discover The Old Hanoi through its old streets.

The official course map now is available on the website with details of all marked check points as well as water stations and aid stations.

Kilometer marker: Kilometer signs can be found along the entire route. Owing to the conditions, however, they may be placed with “+/- meters” from the exact point. The signs are therefore only for orientation and runners shouldn’t calculate speed based only on the signs.
