Both happy and a bit worried are the opposite feelings of anyone who first conquered the 42 km mark like Vu The Hoang, Vu Ngoc Dung or Nguyen Thi Lien.

VnExpress Marathon Hanoi Midnight Night Running has nearly 1,000 runners registered full marathon (42 km). For anyone who has gotten used to and chose to run as their favorite sport, 42 km is an important milestone, marking the “maturity” on the running journey. Among the 1,000 runners mentioned above, there are those who have conquered this challenging distance for the first time.

Present at the Bib at the VM Hanoi night run tournament at noon on November 27, Mr. Vu The Hoang spends a lot of time observing and checking personal information carefully. The first time he ran a full marathon, he wanted the best preparation.

“I have considered and decided to choose VnExpress Marathon Hanoi Midnight to run 42 km. This is a difficult challenge but I think I will do it”, The Hoang shared.

Previously, the Hanoi runner had repeatedly run half marathon in movement tournaments with quite good results. This time, he wanted to change the number of distances on the medal. “Running 42 km is very different. To increase range, I have planned to practice many months before the tournament. Expected to finish in 6 hours,” The Hoang said.

“42 km is the dream distance of anyone running a marathon”, said Vu Ngoc Dung, another runner. Only less than 1% of the world’s population can successfully conquer this harsh run. At the current movement marathon, 42 km is also the distance with the lowest number of registered athletes, along with the number of people finishing only about half.

Many commented that a full marathon is not twice as difficult as a half marathon, it is not a 21 km + 21 km problem that will be a lot more challenging.

“The last 10 km are always very difficult. Comfort is that the runway of VM Hanoi Midnight is quite flat, not steep so it is more favorable. My goal is to finish in 4 hours and 30 minutes,” Vu Ngoc Dung said and wanted challenge yourself after months of preparation and practice.

Ms. Nguyen Thi Lien is one of the last people to sign up for Bib at night. “However, at that time only Bib was 10 km away. I was a little sad. Coincidentally, there was an unfortunate friend who was injured and could not attend, so he ceded Bib 42 km”, Lien said.

Ms. Lien shared that she liked the pink shirt for athletes. Runner Hanoi calls this the “masculine” shirt color, which will stand out when running under the night light. Besides, the Finisher shirt is also an attractive reward for Nguyen Thi Lien. She expected to finish after 5:15 a.m.

In addition to Vu The Hoang, Vu Ngoc Dung and Nguyen Thi Lien, thousands of athletes from different distances have completed their confirmation and received items before VnExpress Marathon Hanoi Midnight departs at 0:00 on November 29 with two distance 5 and 10 km. A distance of 42 km starts at 0:30 and 21 km at 1:15.
