Welcome to the hardest run in Vietnam! VMM is Unique trail running of 10km, 21km, 42km, 70km or 100km in a spectacular mountain region of north Vietnam.

Welcome to the mountains of Vietnam to thousands of yellow rice fields, water buffaloes and colorful ethnic minority groups. The small dirt roads and narrow trails will take you through the majestic mountains and valleys that are only used by locals. Each route will encompass challenging climbs, exhilarating descents and a true glimpse of local life through the rice fields and ethnic minority villages.

The trails with cumulative positive vertical meters ranging from around 600m (10km) to more than 4000 meters (100km) will be on a marked route, tagged at crucial navigational points. Water and fruit will be available at aid stations every 10-15km. Runners doing the marathon or the ultra-distance must bring their own additional energy bars, gel or personal food and other important mandatory equipment. Given the altitude and general hard conditions this cannot be your first Full or Ultra Marathon.

Very strong sun or heavy rain is always a possibility in the mountains. Any participation in this unique event is completely at your own risk and you will be required in order to participate.

After the race we will enjoy the very special social life of mountain runners and a good meal around a big bonfire where we can share our running experiences, the mountains and the twinkling stars above. Bring your family, your friends or join this unique event on your own. You dont have to be a fast runner, but you better be tough and looking for a unique adventure of hiking or running.
