Runners participating in the VM Ha Long 2023 received a shirt, a hat, a Bib belt, milk, water, and electrolyte powder.

There are two versions of the shirt: a t-shirt and a singlet. Half-marathon and full-marathon athletes will be able to choose the shirt style when registering. 11,000 athletes will wear the jersey bearing the mark of the heritage land.

The design team used striking neon yellow and green colors. The stripes along the two sides of the shirt are inspired by palm trees rising on limestone mountains, representing the mark of the land of wonders and conveying the message of promoting and preserving the unique biological value chain of Ha Long Bay.

At the VnExpress Marathon Ha Long last year, the Mude brand's Bib belt appeared for the first time in the race kit. Since then, the belts have accompanied athletes in most of the system's tournaments. This year, this item is exclusively included in full marathon runners' kits.

The race kit also includes Vinamilk Super Nut milk, Vinamilk Greenfarm fresh milk, Vietcoco coconut milk, Herbalife Hydrate electrolyte powder packs, and TH brand tea. Runners can use these items before, during, and after competition.

Completing the race without violating the rules, 21 and 42 km runners will receive finisher's shirts. The item retains the minimalist design and pattern of the running jersey, only different in colors. The design team used orange for the 42 km shirt, while the 21 km shirt was pink-red.

On the back of the shirt, there is a block of text placed vertically, reading "Finisher Half Marathon" or "Finisher Full Marathon." All of VM Ha Long's shirts this year are of the Saucony brand and are made of completely new fabric, increasing their ability to absorb heat.
