A BRAND NEW ADVENTURE FROM VMM
Since we founded VMM in 2013 trail running has boomed in Vietnam and we’ve had many requests to create another VMM race for people to target.
After countless hours of research we are very excited to reveal your next VMM adventure – the Vietnam Jungle Marathon.
The location is Pu Luong Nature Reserve near Mai Chau which lies around 140km south west of Hanoi. It is an area where time stands still. Pu Luong is home to ancient jungle, soaring limestone peaks, waterfalls, rivers, vibrant rice paddy fields and small villages where life goes on as it has for generations.
We selected the Nature Reserve because we wanted to add a new jungle element to the rice terrace scenery and small minority village trails that have made the original VMM so popular. We also wanted to add in different trail challenges and to bring people to a new part of Vietnam that we love very much but which sees few tourists.
The result is an incredible, remote trail adventure with a unique finish location at the Ban Hang Race Village where runners can also stay in traditional stilt house homestays.
Prepare for your next VMM challenge – prepare for the Vietnam Jungle Marathon first edition!
