EDURUN 2020: 30-Day Running Challenge

With a desire to contribute further to the community, Vinschool Education System has decided to launch EDURUN 2020 under the theme “I race, You race, Education wins”. What makes this year’s event so special is that the participants will engage in the ”30-day running challenge with Vinschool”.

EDURUN brings together thousands of students and families and a lot of companies, organizations and celebrities to spread the spirit of compassion.

Held by Vinschool Education System since 2015 to promote the sports movement for health and charity purposes, EDURUN has attracted nearly 40,000 participants and spread the message of compassion to millions of people. Thanks to this meaningful annual event, a lot of classrooms and schools have been built in the most underprivileged parts of Son La, Quang Tri and Dien Bien provinces from the EDURUN proceeds worth VND6.9 billion collected over the years.


To further promote such a great event for health, education and the community, EDURUN 2020 is planned this April in Hanoi, Hai Phong and Ho Chi Minh City. It is expected to attract more than 30,000 runners and raise VND6 billion for poor children.

With the theme “I race, You race, Education wins”, this year’s event encourages the participants to make exercise a habit for a healthier life, and more importantly, contributes to giving Vietnamese children the access to better education. Therefore, besides the actual race to be held in April, EDURUN 2020 will KICK OFF with a 30-day running challenge for students, parents and staff across the system.



This is the very first year Vinschool has launched a virtual race platform.

Those who are interested may register for free and have their workouts tracked every day with electronic devices, then data will be collected and displayed online. With every kilometer run in each of the 04 phases (04 weeks), the participants will contribute some money to the EDURUN Fund (donated by sponsors), and the specific amount of money will be revealed on a weekly basis. This 30-day challenge aims to attract 30,000 runners with 2 million kilometers run in total and VND3 billion raised for the EDURUN Fund out of the proceeds of VND6 billion.

“Set a goal every day, run anywhere, anytime, and feel happy as every step taken helps support poor children.”
