“La Course du Printemps,” also known as “The Spring Race,” is an annual race organized by the French International School Marguerite Duras of Ho Chi Minh City since 2014. Every year, the race gathers hundreds of runners, from beginners to advanced, and is sponsored by many large companies. Far from the noise of the city, you will enjoy this 12 March, a green scenery and a quiet place at The Vietnam Golf & Country Club, District 9 is a perfect combo if you want a break from your everyday routine while enjoying some sport activities.
This year’s race is limited to 470 participants. Like previous years, there are two different circuits for The Spring Race 2017. One is a loop of 5km, and the other one is a bigger loop of 10km. The runners are separated into three categories: Junior (under 19 years old), Open and Senior (over 40 years old). Apart from gaining a huge self-esteem by achieving a non-negligible 5 to 10km distance marathon, winners get various gifts, vouchers and as a top prize: a fantastic round trip from Saigon to Paris, the city of Love!
