Runners from all over the world will be heading to Danang this August for the 2017 Manulife Danang International Marathon, joining hundreds of Vietnamese professionals, casual runners and running enthusiasts to experience one of Southeast Asia’s most magnificent marathon courses.
There will be a wide range of distances available: 5km, 10km, 21km, 42km, and the event is expected to welcome more than 5,000 runners. The course itself follows the stretch of the city coastline, starting with an early morning sunrise over the sea and ending before the heat of the day.
If your kids like to be active, too, then bring them to the Family Fun Day the day before the race. With a range of games and activities, from statue painting to mini bowling, this day is the perfect opportunity to get active and spend some more time with the kids.
Bag drop at 2.30am, attendant check-in at 4.10am and races start with the full marathon at 4.30am. The 5km charity run starts at 7.20am, and all races end by 11am. The Fun Day will run from 9am to 8pm on the 5th.
