300 foreign runners to compete at VnExpress Marathon Hue 2023


About 300 foreign athletes will attend the 3rd VnExpress Marathon Hue on April 16, and 80% of them will compete in the 21 and 42 km distances.

VnExpress Marathon Imperial Hue 2023 is the race with the most foreign runners in the VnExpress Marathon system so far. The lastest one, VM Ho Chi Minh City Midnight, was joined by more than 100 foreign athletes.

More than 50 foreign runners at the Hue race are from Japan, and some of them achieved high results in past tournaments and are potential candidates for top age group rankings.

Some outstanding names include Akiyiki Saito, Ehara Takeo, Yoshitaka Togashi, Sueyoshi Tomohiro, and Akane Nemoto, familiar faces on VnExpress Marathon’s winners podium.

VM Hue 2023 will also welcome many Japanese runners who come for their first race in Vietnam.

Other participants are from Australia, Belgium, France, Germany, India, the Netherlands, Spain, the U.K., and the U.S.

There are five runners from Africa in the unofficial list, registering for the 21 km distance. Nigerian runner Emmanuel Otiji, who has been running for three years, has only participated in two major tournaments in Vietnam including the VM Ho Chi Minh City night run, where he finished the half marathon in less than two hours (sub 2).

South African Lewis Lee Trevor, who completed half marathon sub2 at VM Hue last year, will return this year.

Kenyan Ezekiel Kembol, winner of VM Ho Chi Minh City Midnight 2023 is unsure of his participation.
