About the event

"FOODSPORT Community Run" is a series of Calorie Drive Street Running Programme by FOODSPORT centered around running. It applies the concept of converting exercise into food aid, where the calories you burn contribute to helping others. By actively participating, you turn every drop of sweat into meaningful assistance for those in need. Alongside food collection, participants can explore various streets and alleys across different neighborhoods, enjoying the unique architecture, interacting with local people and events, and experiencing the pulse of the community. Truly embracing the joy of running, we aim to foster public interest in running with a spirit of setting new goals, encouraging self-challenge, building confidence, and promoting physical and mental well-being as part of their life goals.

Welcome the arrival of summer and let's enjoy a run under the sunshine together! This month, we are excited to collaborate with AKIV Urban Run team. Participants will have the opportunity to experience a professional and dynamic running event led by expert guides. The route will take you along the Tseung Kwan O waterfront, where you can admire the spectacular bridge and charming sea views. What's more, we will also traverse the newly opened Tseung Kwan O Promenade South Bridge, offering panoramic views of the bay and its captivating scenery.
