The Red River Runners meet every Saturday to run through the fields and suburbs skirting the Red River in Hanoi, and on occassion we host time trial events. We organise several community races a year including our December Song Hong half marathon and a 10km race which normally takes place a couple of weeks after the Tet holiday. We have also organised 2 mini triathlons.
Our social runs take place on Saturdays at 4.55pm in the summer time and 3.55pm in winter months and details are announced here, usually a day or two in advance, more regularly on our facebook page. We normally run about 10km – 12km, depending on the weather.
On Wednesday nights we meet at 7pm, by Sedona entrance on To Ngoc Van street for our speed training sessions. This works well for runners who aren’t as fast or don’t have the endurance for a long run
The Red River Runners is volunteer-organised. Nobody gets paid and there are no ‘members’ but we make every effort to ensure that there is at least one experienced runner in attendance for every social run. Occassionally this isn’t possible and when this happens runners will agree their own route that is appropriate for the group. RRR is about bringing together people in Hanoi who would like to run with company at least once a week.
