Join us for the RUN Charity Race 2019!

This November, run for healing, run for freedom, run #WithRefugees! Our third annual RUN Charity Race will take place on Saturday, 9th November 2019, on the trails of Tai Tam Country Park.

The RUN Charity Race is our biggest fundraising event of the year, and combines the thrill of a physical challenge, inspiring mountain-top views, a delicious meal prepared by refugees at the finish line, and feel good vibes from supporting RUN’s sports and education programmes to rehabilitate vulnerable refugees in Hong Kong. Refugees are heavily involved in the organisation of the race, from crafting trophies for the winners to cheering you on along the way, and many will be running the race alongside you! With multiple distance categories, including options for kids races and parent-child teams, the RUN Charity Race is sure to be a fun day out for the whole family, all while supporting a great cause.

Special thanks to our pro bono co-organiser RaceBase and our race management partner Racematix.
