UpRace is back!


UpRace is a celebration of getting active and this year, the power of sport can bring us together, whether old or young, fast or slow, we can all inspire each other to reach our goals. By running for Newborns at UpRace, you will be helping to get more sinks into hospitals and providing basic life-saving equipment for every delivery room.


The fantastic sponsors of UpRace 2020 are donating 1,000vnd for every kilometre ran to support the four NGO beneficiaries and you can play your part in bringing us closer to ending preventable newborns deaths in Vietnam by running for Newborns at UpRace.


UpRace 2020 can be a shining beacon of positivity throughout the world; even while Covid-19 keeps us apart, we can come together through the power of the UpRace app. Be a part of this incredible movement and join a global running community committed to creating positive change in the world.


Last year we had 32,000 athletes run an unbelievable 2 million kilometres and we need you so we can smash this record! All you need to do is download the UpRace app and record your runs between the 18th September and 11th October.
