Hanoi (VNA) - A half marathon race aimed at promoting public awareness on tiger protection in Vietnam will be held at the Ciputra urban area in Hanoi's Bac Tu Liem district on December 9.

The event named “Run for Tigers” also aims to encourage the community to commit to not using products made from tiger, thus helping to put an end to the hunting, farming and trade of tigers in the country.

It is expected to attract the participation of more than 800 runners from 43 countries and territories competing in 5km, 10km and 21km runs as well as a 3km family fun run and a 1km run for children.

Runners can register online at www.hanoihalfmarathon.com/register/ before November 22, or enrol directly at Clickspace, No 15, Lane 76, To Ngoc Van Street, in Tay Ho district, Hanoi or at APS, second floor, Ciputra urban area, Xuan Dinh, Bac Tu Liem district.

The event’s proceeds will be used to support tiger conservation activities in Vietnam.

It is jointly organised by the Red River Runners Club, Sporting Republic Company and the local NGO Education for Nature–Vietnam (ENV). - VNA
