VOV.VN - The capital is scheduled to hold a string of activities to start a 31-day countdown to the opening of the 31st Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games 31), starting from April 11.

The Olympic Run Day for Public Health and the 47th Hanoi Moi (New Hanoi) Newspaper Open Running Tournament for Peace 2022 with the participation of nearly 3,000 people will be held around Ho Guom, also known as Sword Lake.

Furthermore, local streets will be decorated with banners, flags, and mascots of the regional games in celebration of the SEA Games 31.

During a meeting held on March 31, Chu Xuan Dung, vice chairman of the Hanoi People's Committee, said this is an important sporting event aimed at promoting the image of Hanoi as a safe, friendly, and attractive city for both domestic and foreign tourists.

Due to this, the organization must be conducted carefully and thoughtfully, he noted.

Dung also required delegates and athletes to follow the Health Ministry’s 5K message regarding COVID-19 prevention and control measures as it seeks to further curb the spread of the pandemic during the regional games.

The SEA Games 31 are set to run from May 12 to May 23 and will feature 40 sporting events. Along with Hanoi, activities and events within the regional games will take place in 11 nearby provinces and centrally-run cities.
