Race through his­tory

Those who dream of vis­it­ing Viet­nam’s ma­jes­tic town of Hoi An while si­mul­ta­ne­ously push­ing them­selves in one of mankind’s ul­ti­mate phys­i­cal chal­lenges will be well served at this year’s Hoi An In­ter­na­tional Marathon. An ex­pected 2,400 run­ners will take to the Unesco World Her­itage town’s nar­row streets to com­pete in ei­ther the full marathon, the 10km race or the lighter 5km fun run – hope­fully with­out stop­ping to gawk at the hun­dreds of hang­ing lanterns and won­der­fully or­nate ar­chi­tec­ture that typ­ify this for­mer port town and trad­ing hub.
