Dennis Zaborac, a naval advisor during the Vietnam War. The last time he ran in Vietnam was 42 years ago, and it was not a marathon. It was a midnight sprint to a sandbagged bunker. There was always a feeling that because he left Vietnam so quickly, he still left something behind. This is the reason why Dennis decided to go back and run the 2015 Danang International Marathon

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
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
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.
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)â€¦ pretty much everyone I have spoken to said that this would make sense.
