Welcome to the hardest run in Vietnam!  VMM is Unique trail running of 10km, 15km, 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.

Hey Vietnam, I want to confess one thing “I fell in love with you at first sight” 10 years ago when I was 16, I came back to Vietnam with my mother. The moment when I got the breathtaking view of green paddy fields and the exotic Red River from the airplane window, I felt the urge inside my heart to bond with that country. My gut told me that Vietnam’s was my home, my true destination. Vietnam is full of diverse landscapes, rich culture, friendly people, warm climate and great food which makes it a perfect place for anyone's ideal vacation. With ten years of living and traveling experience, I would love to help you create amazing trips and having unforgettable experiences in Vietnam.
