Sapa 21 km Challenge is over and it was great fun! Great thanks to all the runners and supporters joining us and making it a fantastic event. I’m sure this will be repeated next year!

Our main sponsors, Topas Travel, Topas Ecolodge and Ratraco Train, helped keeping cost down, and we raised a good amount for Sapa O’Chau.

We are also really happy that  Da Paolo,  Jacksons Steakhouse, and Umove stepped in and sponsored the prizes! Thank you.

The weather was nice and (almost) all runners felt the routes were challenging, but not too hard. The effect of the last 2.5 km uphill on both the 10 km and the 21 km has been felt in many sore thighs the last few days, I guess. But overall everybody did fine and the smiles were big.

    Wow, stunning view for the run in Sapa. By the way, is it confirmed that the Red River Half marathon will be held on 9th Dec?
