The 2015 Olympic Run Day will take place in public areas nationwide on March 22 to promote an active lifestyle, according to the General Department for Sports and Physical Training.

In Hanoi, the event is expected to be joined by 1,500 participants competing in 1,000 – 1,500 races around Hoan Kiem Lake.

In response to the national campaign “All people do physical exercise following the example of Uncle Ho”, the Olympic Run Day aims to encourage people to do physical exercise regularly to stay fit and healthy.

Eight provinces have planned to organise the run so far, including Khanh Hoa, Thai Nguyen, Dak Nong, Thanh Hoa, Dak Lak, Hai Duong and Quang Binh.-VNA
