Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Tran Duc Quy said he hopes that after the annual tournament, each participant will serve as a communications worker to popularise the knowledge on the land and people of Ha Giang to foreign and domestic friends.

The run came within the framework of the activities marking the 100th anniversary of the province’s Khau Vai love market and announcing the UNESCO’s recognition of Dong Van Karst Plateau as a global geopark for the second time. It created a chance to cement and strengthen the exchanges and cooperation between Ha Giang and other provinces and cities in the countries and foreign localities.
