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.

We are once again collaborating with the local running group "Run Dimension" to take you on an exploration journey through Hong Kong's Central and Western District. We will traverse the streets and alleys of the area, allowing you to not only enjoy the pleasure of running but also to appreciate the unique architectural styles, street views, and hidden surprises tucked away in corners. We hope to explore this area rich in history and culture through running, enabling you to rediscover the uniqueness of Hong Kong while on the run.

All burnt calories will be collected and be donated to our beneficiary, J Life Foundation Limited. Let's exercise for hunger together. Registration will be available online from 13 April (Saturday, 12:00nn) to 19 April (Friday, 12:00nn).
