What is the Virtual FUNd Run?

Maybe you now live in London, Melbourne or Bombay?

You can still join the FUNd Run (and Walk!) wherever you are in the world. Sign up for the 5k Virtual option on the registration form and we will be in touch with all the details - but it couldn't be easier! You will just post your photos and finishing times from wherever you are and receive a virtual finishers medal when you make an online donation ($10USD for individuals and $20USD for families)!

What time will you run where in the world?

AQI & Safety

Please be sure to include a mobile phone number when you register so we can keep you updated on AQI and any changes to the planned activities.

Also please note that while every effort will be made to ensure safety for all, families take part in the 5K FUNd Run (and Walk!) at their own risk. Traffic will not be stopped and runners will not have priority. UNIS Hanoi and Ciputra Management do not take responsibility for any incident that occurs outside UNIS Hanoi campus during this event.

Pay on the day: (even if you registered online) 350,000 VND per person and 750,000 for families.

Please note that if you register on the day we cannot guarantee a running bib number for timing for the 5K Run.

Complete the online form and then come to campus to pay the week before the event, and if you are running (or walking) the 5k race you can also pick up your  race number.

Pay and Pick up times: Tuesday (Nov 28) to Friday (Dec 1) in front of the Cafeteria 8:00 - 08:30 and 15:00 - 17:00

The Route?

The 5k FUNd Run (and Walk!) starts on the UNIS Hanoi field and after one lap of the track, runners and walkers will exit onto the Green Route and do three laps of the School before a final lap of honour for the finishing line!


There are many 'couch to 5k' fitness plans available but please be sure to check with your doctor if you have concerns about your training. 

We will have informal training runs weekly from now until 'Race Day' meeting at Gate 5 with 3k and 5k options led by our volunteers. Day/Time to be announced.
