The Olympic Run Day will be organized around that time in some localities such as Dak Nong, Gia Lai, Ha Nam, Nghe An, and Thanh Hoa. Meanwhile, some localities will associate the event with local cross-country events.

The Olympic Run Day for Public Health is part of the activities to mark the 73th anniversary of President Ho Chi Minh’s call on the community to practice physical exercise (March 27, 1946), and the 88th founding day of the physical training and sports sector as well as the establishment of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union (March 26).

The annual event aims to develop the physical exercise and sports movement among the community.

To ensure the success of the event, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism has sent a document to localities asking them to direct and monitor the organization of the event, along with strengthening communications on the importance of physical exercise and sports in protecting and improving health and living quality, thus developing a healthy lifestyle.

In Hanoi, the Olympic Run Day for Public Health 2019 will be associated with the 46th running tournament held by the Ha Noi Moi (New Hanoi) newspaper, which will take place in the morning of March 24.
