Message from the Chair – May 2023

Malcolm Phillips 5k Age Graded Race

Thank you to all of the runners who braved the extreme temperatures on Saturday, 20 May, to race the Malcolm Phillips 5k. It was lovely to catch up with all the AVOHK regulars, as well as lots of new faces.

Congratulations to our age-graded winners, Helen Leung (age-graded time of 20:54.2) and Michael Capper (age-graded time of 15:58.6).

A huge thank you too to our team of volunteers. Without their help, we would never be able to hold these races.

Asia-Pacific Masters Games, Korea

Hong Kong had some great results at the Asia-Pacific Masters Games in Korea earlier this month. Special mention must go to our own AVOHK athletes, Glory Yau Tsui-fan and Caren Lau Hoi-lam. Glory Yau won gold in all three of the W45+ sprints, setting new Games’ records in the 100m, 200m and 400m! Caren Lau won the W40+ pentathlon and long jump. Well done to both!
