The Course Map
The marathon has a perfect flat running course, which will lead you to discover Hanoi's Old Quarter.

The official course map is available on the website, with details of all marked check points as well as water stations and aid stations.

The roadmap can be modified to optimize runners' personal record (PR) as well as the track safety, while still ensuring non-looping for a ranking marathon which is the symbol of Hanoi capital. Any changes are subject to AIMS measuring and verification.

Kilometer marker: Kilometer signs can be found along the entire route. Owing to the conditions, however, they may be placed with “+/- meters” from the exact point. The signs are therefore only for orientation and runners shouldn’t calculate speed based only on the signs.

Security and Health Officials
Security and health officials from the municipal authority are on duty in the area of the event and along the running course to assist runners. All decisions made by security officials and the medical team are final. This also includes removing a participant from the race if needed due to security or health conditions.


Photo Opportunities
The Race Organizing Committee (ROC) will arrange professional photographers and video cameramen at several sites with beautiful views along the running course.

All photos will be posted on ROC's website after the Race Day. Please don’t forget to log on to the website or the fanpage and order photos of your unforgettable moments.
