Hau Ha

Born and raised in Sapa, a beautiful town in the north of Vietnam, I was fortunate enough to exercise in the cold mountainous climate. Running up steep slopes, and crossing familiar hills have helped me to develop excellent endurance. Running makes me feel youthful and energetic, with a healthy body and a relaxed mind. As a brand ambassador of MUDE, I am proud to wear high-quality sportswear made by Vietnamese hands and to compete in international events.

I initially started running for my health, as a way to relieve stress, but then I started to become addicted to this sport. I like long, tough races because I like to challenge myself by facing them alone and finding ways to overcome any obstacles. When I sign up for these challenges, I want to finish as safely as I can while admiring the majestic beauty of nature. I chose to go with MUDE, a Vietnamese sportswear brand, as they use recycled materials and environmentally friendly production processes. Some of my previous achievements:

• Champion and record holder of VMM 100km 2017 & 2020

Valentin Orange

I am a 31 years old trail runners based in Hanoi, Vietnam. I was born in Normandy, France. I grew up by the ocean but I am the happiest up in the mountain! I love trail running because I mostly like being outside in the nature and surrounded by mountains. I started running regularly when I moved to Vietnam in 2015 and I discovered trail running in 2016 when I did my first trail marathon at VMM in Sapa. Since then I have never stopped running and it became more than a hobby, it’s a lifestyle.

My first memorable victory was Vietnam Trail Marathon 70KM in 2021. This victory put me in the spotlight of the trail running scene in Vietnam. The 2022 season was very successful with 4 victories including La Barjo 50km, a very popular and spectacular race in my hometown in front of family and friends.

In 2022 I also did my first 100 miles at the very tough Swiss Peaks in Switzerland, I came in 6th position and this remains one of my best memory of my trail running career.

In 2023, I am proud to be part of MUDE Team composed of the best trail runners of the country. Moreover, I am concerned about environmental issues, and MUDE completely meets my expectations by producing quality garments made out of recycled plastic.

I started running in 2018 and have participated in more than 60 major and minor running races at home and abroad. My strong point is in trail running over super long distances. Starting as an athlete, I discovered that I have a special love and passion for running. After work, I always take the time to train seriously so as to be physically fit to participate in these harsh competitions. I always think that success only comes from passion and effort.

Priya Rai

My name is Priya Rai from Khotang, Nepal. I am 22 years old and am currently studying at University. I have had a passion for running since my childhood. I used to climb uphill and downhill with my small being, thinking about how I would crush this mighty rock with my strong legs. Reaching at the top, I used to imagine myself being successful in climbing the mountain and achieving all my goals. Such childhood dreams, and it was up to me whether I would give this small child a chance to fulfill her dreams or not. And I chose to work hard for it every day.
I am motivated to run every time because it helps to maintain a good mental headspace and it gives me a feeling of freshness. The hills challenge and question my ability to be able to summit them, and I prove them wrong every time by reaching at the top. My main goal is to achieve a name and a place for me and my country from Trail Running.
There are many races that I have participated in but these are a few that had helped me gain UTMB index for my race in Thailand are:

  • 29th Female Category and 24th in her age group of UTMB Mont Blanc 50K (2023) – OCC
  • 66th of the 31km Sierre Zinal (2023)

Javier Sarda

My adventures as a cyclist began many years ago in the city where I was born, Zamora, in the west of Spain. Cycling was a tradition in my family. It started with my grandfather and my uncle. Years later my older brother joined and seeing him every day encouraged me.I started competing when I was only 6 years old in the lowest category that existed. In 2016, the chance arose to try my luck in Asia, specifically Japan, after lacking opportunities and motivation. It was a complicated year but full of learning and growth which opened other doors for me. The following year I would have the opportunity to travel and compete for the first time in Vietnam. In my first competition, VTV Cup, I got the queen stage and 2nd place in the general classification. This result was the beginning of my adventure as a cyclist in Vietnam, which continues to this day. Throughout these years I have successfully won at least one stage in all the competitions held in Vietnam. In addition to getting 5 general classifications, highlighting 2 generals in the most important race in Vietnam, the HTV Cup.

Khoa Vo

When I was 6 years old, an illness left me completely paralysed in both legs after treatment. The doctor advised me to practice swimming for physical support. After months of hard training, swimming not only helped me restore movement to my spine and one leg but also helped me find my passion. I want to stick with this sport for the rest of my life. Swimming to me is like destiny, helping me to escape the scythe of death and find joy in life. Currently, I am a coach at Yet Kieu swimming pool. In my free time, I teach swimming to children with both physical and mental disabilities. This is my way of giving back in life.

• Champion of 6 Para Games

• 20 years of national championship

• Asian Bronze Medal (2022)

Romeo Perthuis

I am a French triathlete that has been living in Thailand for 8 years. I have been doing triathlons since I was 12 however I started swimming a year before. Since then I have participated in multiple triathlons, aquathlons, duathlon running races and swimming competitions. However, the ones that stand out most when I look back are the triathlon and aquathlon French nationals in which I participated 2 years in a row.
Additionally, division 2 racing with my club in France really stood out due to the high level of competition. Over the next few years, I hope to improve and get a better ranking in the nationals and race as much as possible in division 1 now that my club has moved up.

Michael Cassinides

I’m an Australian triathlete living in Singapore. I’ve been doing triathlons for around 5 years now, and have recently gone into the 70.3 distance in 2022. I really enjoy the sport as you learn something new every day and need to keep on top of 3 sports which is a great and rewarding challenge. My main takings from triathlons are what you put out consistently in your training is what you’ll get back in your race results!

Best Triathlon Achievement:

  • 1st place overall Ironman 70.3 Vietnam 2022
