Over 4,000 people run for the community & the development of reading culture 

The running competition "Hue Jogging - Running for the community" for the first time of 2021, organized by Youth Union of Hue City in coordination with the Provincial Development Research Institute, kicked off on the morning of March 21th, attracting more than 4,000 athletes to attend.

Starting from Nghenh Luong Dinh, the athletes participate in the running competition with 3 distances: 2km (938 athletes); 5km (2,615 athletes) and 10km (559 athletes); together, they conquer and experience the poetic roads where many famous monuments and landmarks of Hue situate, such as: Phu Van Lau, Nghenh Luong Dinh, Da Vien Bridge, Le Loi street, Quoc Hoc High School, Phu Xuan Bridge, etc.

At the end of the competition, instead of awarding medals as usual, the organizers will award certificates online to participating athletes, while at the same time heading towards the goal of developing reading culture in the city.

“In addition to calling for and encouraging organizations as well as individuals to donate books, the entire funding of the run will be used to purchase books to provide free reading stations/library being deployed at parks and appropriate spaces in the city, ” said Mr. Phan Thien Dinh,  Secretary of Hue City Party Committee.
