More than 6,300 Runners Conquered the Bridge at HCMC Run 2015
Hosted for the second time, Ho Chi Minh City Run 2015 powered by La Vie was a pounding success, bringing together 6,348 runners of all ages. Eager participants gathered on Nguyen Khac Vien Street, Phu My Hung in the cool of dawn on Sunday, 18 January 2015.
Buzzing with energy, more than 4,700 participants took on the 5km route. Meanwhile, 925 10km-runners and 658 half-marathoners conquered the bridge, taking in breathtaking sights from Crescent Lake and Phu My Bridge.
HCMC Run launched its first 21km half marathon and continued receiving immense support from the community, leaving a deep and positive impression on both local and international runners. Having applied the intelligent scoring system – a world sport trend, the HCMC Run is considered one of world's the biggest and most professional community running events.
Also hyping up the festive mood before and during race day was the inaugural Sport & Tourism Expo, held at the race area on 17 and 18 January 2015. Welcoming one and all, the expo delivered essential and exciting activities such as sports nutrition talks, sports workshops, and several sports-tourism booths from established global brands.
To promote sports as a daily routine, HCMC Run 2015 challenges everyone, particularly young people, to conquer distances and overcome their limitations. Organised by Pulse Active, HCMC Run 2015 not only wants to enhance community bonding, but also build a healthy community in Ho Chi Minh City and discover new talents—the future athletes in Vietnam.
