Vietnam Trail Series has partnered with Topas Riverside Lodge to create a new race deep in the pristine mountain valleys south of Sapa town. Inspired by the area surrounding the new riverside resort, the trail takes runners along the riverbed, passing tranquil farmland and colourful hamlets that are home to ethnic Red Dao minority people. A hanging wooden bridge over the water provides a photogenic finish to the race. Only 150 spots are available, so participants are advised to register as soon as possible.
