The Lam Dong Trail 2022 is slated to take place in the famous tourist city of Da Lat, which is the capital of Lam Dong Province in Vietnam’s Central Highlands region, in November, attracting some 2,500 participants.

A sporting event marking the opening of the ninth Da Lat Flower Festival, the Lam Dong Trail 2022 will begin on November 11 and conclude on November 13.

It is expected to bring runners real experiences on a wild running track stretching through the poetic and majestic highlands.

The race includes four distances of 10km, 21km, 45km, and 70km, taking runners through the steep hills of Lang Biang Mountain, an ancient cherry apricot garden, the K’Ho coffee hill, a pink grass hill, streams, pine forests, and the Bidoup Nui Ba National Park.

This is the first trail running tournament in Vietnam, offering a three-kilometer route for children from six to 14 years old with an aim to hone their running skills and ability to observe, assess, and handle unexpected situations in the natural environment.

The total prize of Lam Dong Trail 2022 is nearly VND200 million (US$8,450) in cash.
