AIMS to start the 2018 Danang International Marathon
The Danang International Marathon is the first professional Marathon in Vietnam certified by IAAF - AIMS (International Association of Athletics Federations and Association of International Marathons and Distance Races).

Danang International Marathon 2018

The 2017 edition of the Danang International Marathon marked a 5 years milestone with almost 7000 runners joining the race. Only two months since that day but many of our runners are fully recovered and already looking forward to run there again, as well as the organizer!

One of the race’s highlights is the race course itself; how stunning it is to see the sun rising up on the seaside, the city waking up while crossing the different bridges that characterizes the city. Definitely a memorable way to discover the city. Whether through the different bridges or the streets of the city, the Danang International Marathon scored as having one of the most beautiful race routes in Vietnam with the 5 different bridges, incredible sunrise, and cheering supporters.

Preparing for an amazing race route is not easy, it requires a lot of efforts and the desire of bringing all runners the race route that they deserve. That’s why we are already working on a new race course in Da Nang. Many would wonder now; can it be more beautiful than it was? The answer is yes! Unfortunately, we can not reveal you more details yet but soon we will be back with more hot updates! Here are some of the photos from our last trip to Danang with AIMS to discover a new race course:

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)… pretty much everyone I have spoken to said that this would make sense.
