The prize pool of VnExpress Marathon Hanoi Midnight 2022 is 1.5 times higher than the first season in 2020.

VM Hanoi Midnight 2022 will grant 134 individual prizes and 10 team prizes worth a total of VND1.5 billion (US$60,390).

The full marathon prize will once again be split into two equal-value categories: professional and amateur.

The winners, first and second runners-up will each receive prizes worth VND32 million ($1,288), VND28 million, and VND23 million, respectively. Garmin watches and Adidas items are included in the prize pool in addition to cash.

To place in the top three, male athletes must not break any of the tournament's general rules and have a gun time of under 2 hours, 45 minutes. Less than 3 hours and 10 minutes are needed for females.

The results will be transferred to the age category if runners do not match the requirements.

The rules are not applied to the amateur category.
