Are there no T-shirts for the event?
No, we do things a little differently – At the current time, we find T-shirts for events good, but people rarely wear them. Instead, we give items to help you become healthier, fitter and more inspired that you can use in your everyday life. We wanted to give you things you will use and see every day, to remind you keep going, and that hard work pays off.
Are there water stops on the course?
Please bring your own drinks for the run or drink plenty before.
there are no water stops for the 5K course
There is one water stop for the 10K course – runners must bring their own water bottle to refill
there is water at the end of the run for all – again please bring your own bottles to refill. We will not be giving away sing bottles of water

We have scheduled 2hrs for the 5km and 3hr time limit for the 10km.

Yes! Please go to the ‘Race Information’ page and you will find the schedule.
If I am unable to attend the run, can my friend take over my entry place?
If I am in a team of 2 and my teammate can’t make the run, can I swap someone else in?
Teams of 2 are allowed to swap one person due to unforeseen circumstances. This needs to be done within 2 weeks of the event date. Each change will be subject to a $50 admin fee. You will need to send us an email to Race Timing Solutions or firstname.lastname@example.org with all the details and information from that person.
Why aren’t there age categories?
This is an event that focuses on participation and celebration of health, fitness and positivity. The joy and strength that you get out of working hard and doing your best is your reward. Join your friends and kick some butt doing the best you can!
For the time being the rules will stipulate, the first 3 across the line in solo or teams will get prizes. As the race grows we may consider including age categories
Where can I leave my bag while the run is in progress?
Are there prizes for the run?
What if the run is canceled due to bad weather or I can't make it?
The weather in Hong Kong can be very localised. The organizer reserves the right to cancel the run at any time if weather conditions deteriorate. If a thunderstorm warning or typhoon signal is raised before the run start we will assess the conditions in relation to the specific course route and make a necessary decision based on keeping participants safe. This may include postponing the start until the weather warning has been lowered or the area is unaffected by the warning. If a thunderstorm warning is raised during the run, participants will be instructed by the course volunteers to head to the finish directly or via a shortened route. All participants will be alerted via email before the run if any of these outcomes look likely. Entry fees are non-refundable.
