Looking to run a marathon, but getting bored of the same old local city races? Try the Da Nang International Marathon (DNIM) in Vietnam!
Set in the seaside city of Da Nang, the DNIM will take place on 31 August 2014 at Da Nang city, and over 4,500 international and local runners are expected to join in.
Enjoy the Wonderful Vietnamese City of Da Nang
The race includes 3 distances: Marathon 42.195km; Half Marathon 21.097km and 5km Fun Run. Registration fees for the 3 categories are as follows: Full Marathon (US$110), Half Marathon (US$90), and 5K Fun Run (US$30). Runners' records will be measured by a chip system located within the runner's bib number.
In 2013, the race received a strong response of 4,000 athletes from 63 provinces and cities in Vietnam and nearly 30 countries around the world. Harvesting from the success of the first Marathon season, the Da Nang International Marathon this year will be organized with larger range, more professional quality, and promises to bring a strong, wide and deep integration for Vietnam's sports. It would also be the first step for Vietnamese athletes to participate in international tournaments worldwide.
