EVENT DETAILS

"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.

Due to the annual mega sport event, the Standard Chartered Marathon, running might be the most popular sport in the city. In order not to disturb runners' training, we are going to have our first community run on this year after SCHKM. We welcome you to join us for a recovery run. We are happy to tell you that Chan Ka Ho, popular and local running star coach, will join us and lead the run this time. Come join us if you want to meet him.

Same as before, all burnt calories will be collected and be donated to our beneficiary, Foodlink Foundation. Let's exercise for hunger together. Registration will be available online from 13 Jan (Saturday, 1200 noon) to 24 Jan (Wednesday, 23:59).
