Tagged the ‘Run in Paradise’, a course for the Phu Quoc Marathon has been created that combines running with national park scenery and views of the ocean. Plotted through the southern half of the island along one of the most scenic stretches of beaches in South East Asia, many events are scheduled — the main race of 42km (Full Marathon), plus the shorter 21km (Half Marathon), 10km, 5km and a 1km kids race, all finishing inside the grounds of Long Beach Resort Phu Quoc, where athletes are welcome to run straight into the refreshing ocean.
