Song Hong Annual Half Marathon 2015 – ‘Run for Rhinos’
- Category: ENV Activities
- 16 November 2015
The Red River Runners (RRR) will host the 9th annual Song Hong Half Marathon on Sunday December 13th in Hanoi. This year’s event includes 5km, 10km, and 21km (half marathon) races and is themed the “Run for Rhinos”. The race aims at bringing attention to the crisis rhino populations are facing as a result of the senseless poaching for rhino horns, which are used in traditional medicine and as a status symbol in Vietnam and China.
Education for Nature Vietnam (ENV) has partnered with Red River Runners once again this year to help promote rhino protection; together we're urging the public to stop rhino horn consumption and show their support for rhinos by joining the “Run for Rhinos” half marathon.
Last year, more than 400 people participated in the race. This year, Red River Runners and ENV hope to have even more people involved.
The proceeds of the marathon will go to help support rhino protection efforts in Vietnam.
Let’s Run for Rhinos!
