To celebrate the Chinese year of the OX, during the entire month of February we are challenging you to run our lunar 3 race series. It's a simple challenge that all family members can take part in. It consists of 3 courses in which all family members can run. Just submit pictures and times of all members and we will take the average time to find the overall winner.
Entry is free, but if you would like to donate, we are raising money for the charity RUN. RUN Hong Kong provides rehabilitation through sport and education to 151 vulnerable refugees in Hong Kong. RUN focuses mainly on women and their children who suffer from trauma, and uses running to help them recover mental and physical strength and build a community. For more information please refer to www.runhk.org
A limited edition t-shirt has been made for the event. All profits raised from these will go to RUN charity.
Lugard Road - The famous 3.2km loop at the Peak. Take in the view as you run. The course is flat to begin with, with one hill to negotiate, but ends on a fast downhill. It is the hardest of the 3 courses, but has wonderful views. Tip - Go early to beat the crowds.
Bowen Road - Start at the 1km marker and run 1.5km out along the top of Mid Levels East and back again. It is mostly flat with a small climb in the middle. Keep an eye out for the fairy doors!!
Hong Kong Harbour Front - A fast and flat 3km, but do take in the famous HK icons around you. An out and back course starting at the HK Wheel.
Detailed maps of all courses will be issued soon.
