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.
