About ho chi minh city marathon

1992, The first international Marathon of Vietnam named "Ho Chi Minh City Marathon" was born. This is the first sporting event and a surprise move of Vietnam since the liberation of 1975 and started to welcome tourists since 1987. The first HCMC Marathon was held in February 1992 with the participation of nearly 250 athletes from 26 countries. At that time, Vietnamese people were still very dim on the definition of "Marathon". Among the participating athletes, there were 92 Vietnamese athletes and only eight of them had ever run in Marathons. Thousands of people stood along Le Duan Boulevard to welcome athletes to their destination. 

The HCMC Marathon has become an annual event and currently holds a wide range of distances: Full Marathon - 42km, Half Marathon - 21km, 10km, 5km & the Kids Dash. In early days of the event, most of the athletes who joined were veterans of the United States and Vietnam. Today, HCMC Marathon expects and welcomes young people - Vietnam's future owners.
