QUẢNG BÌNH – About 100 adventurers will participate in the second Tú Làn Adventure Race 2016 in the central Quảng Bình Province from April 1 to 3.

The organisers of the race, Oxalis Adventure Tours and Vietmark Team Building, said 10 teams will compete in a boat race that involves various caves and other features in Phong Nha-Kẻ Bàng National Park, covering 30km of trails and rivers.

This adventure-filled race combines racing in untamed rivers in a traditional Độc Mộc (dug-out canoe) boat, jungle treks, climbing up and down hills, and swimming in underground rivers.

The race organisers said competitors would have to overcome their fears and challenge their limits, but they would also explore many incredible places in Tú Làn area with several magnificent destinations such as Rat Cave, Hùng Tôn Cave and Hùng Tôn Valley.

The main purpose of the race is to create a new playground for those who love challenges and exploration, love to join nature conservation activities, and want to provide community support. A certain percentage of the proceeds from the tickets will go towards the construction of floating houses, which will help poor households in Tân Hóa Village.

The race promises harder challenges and completely new experiences with absolutely unforgettable moments in the wildest jungles of Việt Nam.

The winners of the first prize will get VNĐ50 million (US$2,270), while the runner-up and third-place winner will get VNĐ40 million and VNĐ30 million, respectively.

The organisers are also presenting a media prize of VNĐ35 million. – VNS
