Vietnam Trail Marathon 2021 will be held on January 31, 2021 in Moc Chau, one of the most famous tourist destinations in Vietnam with green tea hills, cherry blossom gardens in full bloom spring – and this is also a great time to host this marathon event.

This is the third race in a series of terrain races by Topas, the organizer of the Vietnam Mountain Marathon, and the Vietnam Jungle Marathon.

Founder and Race Director, David Lloyd, said he chose Moc Chau because he needed an area that would provide a good experience like the other two Topas races, VMM and Vietnam Jungle Marathon (VJM): “We held races in the two most beautiful locations in Vietnam – Sa Pa and Pu Luong, so I had to find a very special place to match: Moc Chau, with flower gardens, trails and beautiful tea hills, which will deliver a great experience for our runners has come to expect. ” Lloyd said.

The running track is the result of a thorough survey across the hills here. We have created a trail that runs through a variety of terrains and landscapes on completely runable tracks.

You will discover the ethnic minority villages hidden in the mountains where cars cannot reach. You will also run through fields of white flowers, green tea hills and orchards. And you will also share the running track with the locals, horses, donkeys, buffaloes, wild boars and many other interesting characters.
