According to Tieu Phuong (senior advisor), this running activity was a good opening for an exciting and successful year for runners. “Even though ARS has been established not too long ago, we have received great attention. I believe that this year’s event will be another chance for us to grow and stage more sucessful events for people with a shared interest in running and keeping a healthy lifestyle."

The highlights of the event were the new SolarBoost sports shoes, dubbed as the "Green Rocket." 20 runners and celebrities were sporting these new sneakers – oozing praise after the competition. Mau Thuy, who previously attended the International 21km Marathon Competition, understands the value of a pair of good running shoes. "These shoes not only put a spring in your feet, they are also comfortable and provide sufficient support for healthy, safe running."

Additionally, Thanh Duy, a member of ARS, said, “This product totally lives up to the name Green Rocket. The incredible rubber soles providing outstanding grip, with the upper part designed with Sketchweb Technology, runners are able to maximise energy efficiency. Even though this was the first time I tried them, they felt super comfortable and I did not get tired at all.”
Appearing two months ago, ARS has been constantly conducting fascinating events during the weekends, including theoretical running training, nutrition regime, practice tips, breathing skills, and running skills for different running tracks.
