March Challenge

March Challenge


Running is not just jogging. Running changes runners' life in spectacular ways. Even people who have just started to run can see many changes, with new habits, becoming more positive in the way of thinking, working and taking daily activities. Whether running has become a passion or is only to improve health, as the world is now engulfed by panic and fears over the COVID-19 outbreak, more practice to boost resistance and the immune system has become more practical.

With a desire to accompany runners to get through this epidemic and continue training in order to retain the tempo when most of the races have been postponed or cancelled, VPBank Hanoi Marathon and 84RACE will organize a chain of running challenges, with the first theme set for March: “Let's Get Through the Epidemic with VPBank Hanoi Marathon”.

In order to bring runners more inspiration and motivation to maintain their daily training, VPBank Hanoi Marathon will present a Bib number discount code (up to 30 percent), corresponding to each challenge milestone conquered by the runners who register an account with 84RACE. Details are as follows:

Category  30 km (Discount code for 20%)
Category  50 km (Discount code for 25%)
Category 100 km (Discount code for 30%)
Category 200 km (Discount code for 40%)
Category 250 km (Discount code for 50%)

In addition, runners having completed the challenge will also have the opportunity to join a lucky draw and win interesting gifts (*) from VPBank Hanoi Marathon, including five free Bib numbers, T-shirt, shoes… to help them further nurture the passion for running anytime, anywhere.

For runners who have just begun the practice, this will be a great opportunity for you to start the "self-revolution", to get on with a daily routine.
