VIETNAM JUNGLE MARATHON
The location is Pu Luong Nature Reserve near Mai Chau which lies around 140km southwest of Hanoi. It is an area where time stands still. Pu Luong is home to an 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.
