The VnExpress Marathon Hanoi Midnight has two shirt versions: T-shirt and singlet in coral pink with strong black stripes.

VnExpress Marathon Hanoi Midnight 2022 keeps its iconic color pink but switches from fuchsia shade to coral pink. The shirt features black diagonal stripes inspired by the stripes on the tiger (this year's zodiac animal), a metaphor for the strength and confidence of runners. The official shirt is commented to exude personality and can make runners stand out when running in the middle of the night.

Runners testing the route on October 13 were the first to experience the new marathon shirt. The coral pink stood out under the night light. The shirt's fabric allows heat dissipation and sweat absorption.

Runners in the 5km and 10km distances will receive a T-shirt, while singlets are for runners of 21km and 42km distances. Running groups will have their group's logo printed on the back of the shirts.

The organizer also introduced T-shirt for 21km finishers and and windbreakers full marathon finishers. The two designs are also in pink and black colors, but more black. The windbreaker is a typical item of VM Hanoi midnight as it suits the cold weather and has become an item for runners to show off their achievements.
