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 !
The trails are all on routes marked under the supervision of our Head of Trails from the original VMM. Water and fruit will be available at aid stations every 10-15km. Runners doing the marathon or the ultra-distance must bring their own additional energy bars, gel or personal food and other important mandatory equipment .
Very strong sun or heavy rain is always a possibility in the mountains. Any participation in this unique event is completely at your own risk and you will be required to sign a waiver in order to participate.

After the race we will create a very special running party atmosphere at the Ban Hang Race Village within the Nature Reserve. Here you can enjoy food, share your experience with your fellow runners and in the evening enjoy a roaring bonfire as the stars come out in the night sky above.
Bring your family, your friends or join this unique event on your own. Just like at the original VMM, you don’t have to be a fast runner, but you better be tough and ready for a unique adventure!
