To All VHM 2019 Runners: "THANK YOU" Note


The VPBank Hanoi Marathon - Heritage Race 2019's Organizing Committee would like to extend our warmest greetings to you!

It has been an honor for organizers of this Hanoi autumn tournament to welcome long-distance running enthusiasts, professional athletes and international Elites, who altogether have turned this event into an exciting race that has attracted nearly 7,000 people, including 1,500 runners from 58 countries.

The Organizing Committee would like to thank and congratulate you for your participation, for your passion, for the true Fair Play sports spirit and for responding to the call from Hanoi. Although the results may not be as in your expectations, we believe that all of you are the winners.

We acknowledge here the highest support from the municipal government, professional agencies at home and in the world, tireless efforts from volunteers and valuable encouragement from each city resident, whose synergy has made VPBank Hanoi Marathon 2019 the best possible event, an international sporting event that carries Hanoi's symbolic feature.

Organizing for thousands to run through the Old Quarter streets and many inner-city routes has never been easy, especially with a track from where the running results can be used to qualify for Boston Marathon. With the participation of experts from the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF), the Association of International Marathons and Distance Races (AIMS), the Vietnam Athletics Federation, the running course has been designed to incorporate challenges while ensuring safety for the runners to experience such a feeling of striding under Hanoi's autumn sky, while themselves becoming the running points that connected famous sights and relics with 1,000-year history such as Hoan Kiem Lake, West Lake, Long Bien Bridge, the Hanoi Flagpole, the Temple of Literature, Tran Quoc pagoda and many others.

Apart from the runners' joy and excitement, the Organizing Committee has also promptly acknowledged some shortcomings and we appreciate your comments to continue improving the organization, with the only wish to have you aboard and that you will leave with the satisfaction of the event and the best feelings for Hanoi.

We can be proud to have done something truly meaningful this autumn. Your loving steps and energy for Hanoi, for charitable funds have surely left an unforgettable impression about the local people, which will motivate us to reach and achieve better things.

Much thanks once again to all of you, who have joined the VPBank Hanoi Marathon 2019, and wish you the best health to be able to continue pursuing your passion, inspiring everyone to experience the beauty of marathon.

The Organizing Committee is expected to conduct many activities for connecting and training with international professional coaches. Plans also include tours to experience major races such as Berlin Marathon, Tokyo Marathon, London Marathon, Boston Marathon... so we could join you and nurture the passion.

We look forward to welcoming you in the upcoming activities.

Good bye and see you again!
