Sheung Shui Choi Yuen Estate Theater
24 September 2023 (Sunday)
16:45 - 19:00
"FOODSPORT Community Run" is a series of Calorie Drive Street Running Programme organized by FOODSPORT; we will take you to run at different districts and routes, to feel the pulse of the city by running, and at the same time, rising for under-privileged groups in Hong Kong.
Sheung Shui is located in the west of the North District of the New Territories of Hong Kong. Apart from the indigenous residents, I believe that most people has the impression that it is a faraway area. This time will bring all runners to get to know more about the community of Sheung Shui.
The starting point of the Choi Yuen Theater at Choi Yuen Estate, passing by a basketball court covered by a flyover - Tai Tau Ling Playground. This course is very consistent with the characteristics of Hong Kong, which is small and crowded. It is a playground surrounded by concrete forests. Therefore, it became one of the scenes of the Hong Kong-produced movie. Afterwards, we will run along the Shek Sheung River to junction of Sheung Yue River and Ng Tung River. We will stop for a while at the famous Big Water Viaduct in Sheung Shui, with the trains pass by on the sidetracks, runners can feel like they are in the plot of a movie!
Same as before, all burnt calories will be collected and be donated to our beneficiary "AMITY". Let's exercise for hunger together. Registration will be available online from 9 September (Saturday, 1200 noon) to 15 September (Friday, 1200 noon).
