The Kun Marathon Quy Nhon 2023, a running race for children aged 6 to 10 years old, will be held in Quy Nhon coastal city on Saturday.

With 2,600 children participating, Kun Marathon Quy Nhon 2023 has become the second largest tournament for kids in the VnExpress Marathon system, after Kun Marathon Hue 2023, which attracted 3,000 children.

Phan Nguyen Xuan Anh, a Quy Nhon resident, registered for five children in her family to compete in the race. Kun Marathon Quy Nhon will be her children's second VM race since 2022.

"There are not many competitions for kids in Quy Nhon. My children are excited about the race, and have been practicing every day," she said.

The organizers started distributing Bib and race kits to the children runners on Friday morning.
