Why the race starts so early ?
The full marathon has the distance of 42 kilometers to be covered in one race. With this distance the maximum time to complete the course is 7 hours. The organizers have assigned the start time of 4 am this is to ensure the comfortable weather conditions, having a cool weather start, building up to the warm sunny rays of the morning and to experience the beautiful sights of the city and its beaches.
HOW TO GET TO THE START LINE
The Start/Finish line of the race is in front of Bien Dong Park, Vo Nguyen Giap Str., Da Nang. It's right on the beach. Our recommendation is to take a taxi to the event site for your convenience. We encourage you to inform your hotel concierge / reception of your planned event participation so that they may arrange your transfers to and from the event site.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT MANULIFE DANANG INTERNATIONAL MARATHON

Thanks for the organization of the first Da Nang Marathon! I had a great time and enjoyed the nice course around the city and along the waterfront. Will recommend this to my friends and truly hope to there will be a second Da Nang Marathon next year

Andre Zimmermann Germany

Congratulations on the best ever first marathon organized in such a beautiful place. Absolutely enjoyed it and will ensure we pass the word around to running enthusiasts in our part of the world

Eileen Goh Singapore

The De Nang Marathon/Half Marathon is an event which allows you to not only run 42.2k or 21.1k but also an opportunity to explore an exciting part of Vietnam .In particular I totally enjoyed my two visits to Hoi An. The Vietnamese people are extremely friendly and race organisation is faultless.

Pat Carroll Australia

Just wanted to thank you guys for a fantastic experience at the Race in Da Nang. Really appreciated the regular and well stocked drinks tables (with plenty of sports drinks). Also, the roads seemed well policed to save us from the Da Nang traffic. A great first year. My only suggestion is an earlier start for next year (even for the half marathon)… pretty much everyone I have spoken to said that this would make sense.
