HO CHI MINH CITY MARATHON 2020

For us, running is not only about crossing the finish line, but it is rather about the journey – the complete experience of signing up and then running a marathon. The different sights and sounds in every kilometer along the race course will make the experience unique. The race course will give you access to the city wherein you will see how it integrated the old Saigon with the cosmopolitan and modern aspects of Ho Chi Minh City.

DATE: January 4-5, 2020
STARTING LOCATION: C13 Tan Trao, Phu My Hung, Ward Tan Phu, District 7

EXPECTED WEATHER

January is definitely the best time to join a marathon in the south of Vietnam.
The temperature will reach the lowest point of the year, stay around 20°C- 27°C which brings a nice weather – a perfect chance for our participants to finish the race with a new personal record. More than that, the atmosphere is filled with breezing wind blowing all day long, the smell of many kinds of tropical flowers blooming during the spring and an excitement of an up-coming Tet.
