The VnExpress Marathon Hanoi Midnight will be held in Vietnam's capital city in March 2020.

The marathon's Super Early Bird tickets are available from Thursday through December 16.

The race will have four distances, five kilometres, 10 kilometers, 21 kilometers (half marathon), and 42 kilometers (full marathon), similar to its cousins, VnExpress Marathon Hue 2020 to be held in April and Quy Nhon 2020 in June.

The midnight race, starting in the evening on March 7 and ending in the morning of March 8, seeks to introduce a different perspective of Hanoi to runners and supporters. Participants can enjoy the silence of a Hanoi spring night, broken occasionally with the sounds of the capital city’s nightly culinary activities.
