Jungle Marathon in Vietnam

Hanoi (Vietnam), April 8 (IANS Jungle Marathon — a six-stage gruelling race through forests and the first of its kind in Vietnam — will be held in the central Quang Binh province from May 31 to June 9.

To date, around 30 athletes from countries and regions have registered to compete in the race, which is reserved for a maximum of 60 competitors, Xinhua reported Monday.

The race will cover six stages through forests of the Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park – one of Vietnam’s world natural heritage sites recognised by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (Unesco) – and the border with Laos.

Competitors will then return to Quang Binh’s Dong Hoi city for a stunning finish on the beach, according to Jungle Marathon’s website.

Competitors will run through the jungle, spend nights in caves where military and villagers often hide, and across mountains and waterfalls, the website said.
