November 2017

Registration for November 2017 Run

The Women’s Five event is more than just a run. Our hope is that it will become an agent of change that will help you achieve your goals, whatever they may be. Included in your registration is a 5 week health and wellness program as well as a weekly meetup training session for all participants to join.

Why Running and Yoga?  “Yoga and running are the Yin and Yang of fitness” – Denise Thompson

We chose these two activities because they both compliment each other so well. Yoga is the perfect activity for runners because it gives you a chance to work on your flexibility and strength – engaging all the major and minor muscles you need to run well and stay fit. By bringing together two such large, active communities in Hong Kong you now have more and greater access to the best of both worlds.

What’s New for November?

  • Min age lowered to 14 (must be 14 on race day)
  • New Meditation Week
  • New Mindfulness Week
  • Stress Talk and group meditation by Dr Borschel
  • Movie Night
