Under the ‘Mark of Blue Island’ theme, Co To Marathon 2023 featured four distances of 5km, 10km, 21km, and 42km. Runners could cherish the breathtaking charm of the island while running through many famous local attractions such as the Ho Chi Minh Statue, Co To Town, Co To Lighthouse, Choi primeval forest, Love Beach, and Hong Van Beach. All made up distinctive and memorable running experiences for runners on this stunning paradise island.

In addition, at Co To Marathon 2023, participants were encouraged to bring and use no plastic items to limit plastic waste, reserving the local environment. The positive message of ‘blue island’ exerted positive effects throughout the race, in line with the goals the locals and TMG strive for.

In collaboration with organizers and local authorities, TMG aims to widely promote the picturesque beauty of Co To Island to both domestic and international tourists, contributing to the sustainable development of the local economy and tourism. It also helped spread the eco-friendly message of limiting plastic waste and single-use plastics in order to preserve the island’s pristine charm.

This is also an opportunity for TMG to continue promoting the sports movement among the community. That’s what TMG always strives for that can be seen not only at Co To Marathon 2023 but also at other races such as TUI BLUE Beach Run 2023 (4/2023), Hoi An Discovery Marathon 2023 (9/2023), and the coming Cam Mountain Trail 2023 (11/2023). Hence, it allows TMG to promote its cultural values which have played a crucial role in the Group’s success throughout nearly 30 years. Those are values of Health, Kindness, and Growth.
