Announced at the end of last year, VnExpress Marathon Hanoi Midnight has attracted thousands of professional and amateur runners. The first large-scale night race in Vietnam will start officially on the night of November 28 through the morning of November 29, bringing new experiences to runners.
Thousands of participants will run together under the street lights, from a foggy winter night through dawn on Phan Dinh Phung, Dinh Tien Hoang, Phan Boi Chau streets or in front of the Opera House.
Taking place at the end of November, the race will be highlighted by the early winter winds of northern Vietnam, capturing the night economy landscape of Hanoi – a capital with over a thousands years of history.
In terms of outfits, the organizers have prepared tank top shirts so that the runners can wear them or combine with jackets inside. The fuchsia pink shade (ten o’clock pink) has drawn the attention of the running-lovers community since it was officially announced earlier this month.
