In 2018, Vang Vieng hosted the first-ever trail run in the country and brought together over 600 running and adventure lovers.
The race hopes to gather even more runners to a unique venue promising incredible natural landscapes.
Green Step, a new Lao event organizing company with an eco-background is behind the challenging yet incredibly fun event. It is a joint venture between Green Discovery Laos, a leader in ecotourism and adventure travel in Laos, and Teelakow, a trail run organizer based in Thailand.
Participants can choose to enter different competitions, from 8 to 85 kilometers. The trail consists of Vang Vieng’s breathtaking surroundings, passing streams, small villages, and a few buffalos. Interaction with locals is another aspect of this trail that immerses runners in the authentic culture of Laos.
Registration is already open for the Vang Vieng Trail Run, either online at Teelakow’s website or at any of Green Discovery Laos’ offices.
