2015 Race 18th January

ENTRY OPEN VIA THIS  LINK  https://regonline.activeglobal.com/CCM2015

Unlike many events in Hong Kong we do not employ companies to set up the race start and finish, we do this ourselves,  We believe our races should be organised by runners for runners . It is als a question of the facilities at our disposal and the restrictions placed on us by the AFCD .  So we need mor volunteers to help us out on Saturday  putting up signs and setting up the admin area and the start area and then on Sunday on course. 

Once again Dave Smith will be  co ordinating the races, he is doing this pretty much single handed so he really does looks forward to hearing from you.......

Thank you GAMMON Construction who have continued their sponsorship of the event.

There are AVOHK prizes but you must be a paid up member of AVOHK to be eligible and wear your AVOHK club kit on race day.  Those AVOHK members who are also HKLRRC members can wear their HKLRRC vests and be eligible.

All race queries  and offers of help please email Dave Smith at: chinacoastmarathon2015 @  gmail.com

2014 AVOHK 5K Series

The final race of AVOHK 5k Series  was held on 11 October at South Bay. Runnners were treated to very pleasant, cool and dry autumn weather.  Race Director Freeman Lee was very happy with the  good turn out of participants  both as  runners and as race  marshalls to provide direction and ensure road safety, what  good team work.
In the men's race, 17 year old David Maddux, aka Dr M braved to take the lead until took a slightly wrong turn at the half way point. Local favourite,  Man Wah Tang grasped the opportunity to take the lead but Maddux never gave up, they exchanged the position couple times until Tang out-sprinted at the last 100m. Tang won the overall in 16:18, Maddux had to settle to second in 16:21, which is 12 second improvement from last year.
In the women's race, 16 year old triathlete Camden Richter, aka Cricket took the lead from the gun but 15 year old  Erin Brown from West Island School comfortably settled in  behind until the halfway point, then took the lead on return leg. Richter tried to sprint at the top of the hill which was about 200m before the finish. Brown responded and maintained her speed to claim the overall female winner by one step ahead, both finished in 18:53.
