Many of the world’s elite runners compete in Hong Kong‘s largest outdoor sporting event every year. The Hong Kong Marathon has grown from just 1,000 competitors in 1997 to tens of thousands in recent years. It is expected to be even bigger next year, with a full marathon, a half marathon and a 10 km run taking competitors past some of the best urban scenery Asia’s world city has to offer.
The fierce competition is just as exciting for spectators as it is for runners, with the 42.195 km full marathon starting in the scenic Tsim Sha Tsui area of Kowloon, racing up into the New Territories and heading back down to a spectacular finish in Victoria Park on Hong Kong Island.
This event is awarded “M” Mark status.
