The marathon will have the same four distances – five kilometers, 10 kilometers, 21 kilometers (half marathon) and 42 kilometers – and the same registration fees as its sister, VnExpress Marathon Quy Nhon 2020.
The race will be held on April 5 in Hue, the seat of Vietnam’s last royal rulers, the Nguyen Dynasty, which reigned from 1802 to 1945.
Runners can register from now until December 2 to get the Super Early Birds price of VND250,000-750,000 ($10.81-32.42), based on the distance.

VnExpress Marathon Hue 2020 will be the biggest such event to be held in Hue and will take place alongside Festival Hue, a biennial celebration where a wide range of cultural events, games, and performances are held over the course of a week.
Event organizers, VnExpress and authorities of Thua Thien-Hue Province, said runners will race alongside the Perfume River, cross the Truong Tien Bridge and pass the Hue High School for the Gifted, the second oldest high school in Vietnam, and part of the Imperial City.
The Hue event will happen two months ahead of the VnExpress Marathon Quy Nhon, the second edition of which is set for June 7, 2020.
Around 5,000 runners, 30 percent of them foreigners, are expected to participate in the Hue run.
