Tam Coc, Vietnam Running Route: Temple-to-Temple 5.5 Miler
This course is a mix of dirt road and pavement, almost entirely past rice paddies and karst mountains. Pancake flat. The 5.5 mile loop extends from Bich Dong temple, through Tam Coc town center, and then out to Thai Vi temple. You can start/finish anywhere along the course; we started from our homestay at Tam Coc Nature. There is very little traffic, although you will run into a little family of goats as you head out to Thai Vi temple. You will also encounter some tourist congestion at the boat dock area during peak hours between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Other than that, it's smooth sailing. A lovely course to zone out and enjoy the scenery.
