Nearly 4,500 people registering to join the “VnExpress Marathon 2019” competition so far, jointly organised by VnExpress online newspaper and Binh Dinh Province People’s Committee.

Local athletes are practicing as the preparedness for the VnExpress Marathon 2019.

The event is expected to become the first one which will be attended by the largest number of people in Binh Dinh so far, as the participants will also be accompanied by about 2,000 supporters.

According to Duong Dinh Viet, a member of the organising board, the 21-km course has attracted more than 1,600 runners. Meanwhile those who will participate in the 42-km course will run from Nguyen Tat Thanh Square to FLC Quy Nhon resort, instead of repeating rounds as in other similar competition.

The event will also see some well-known athletes in Vietnam to join, including runner Tieu Phuong who is said to be eager to attend the competition.

Apart from participants coming from other provinces and cities, 24 local athletes also registered to compete against the others, notably the national championship holder Pham Thi Hong Le.
