Not so hot yet


Unfortunately, Hong Kong's long distance running events do not specifically cater to the power-walking community, as other major international events (like Berlin Marathon with separate starting block and certificates) do. However, it is not forbidden to (race-) walk the distances, and actually, many participants do walk. The only limitation is time, as racecourses on popular thoroughfares have to be re-opened to normal traffic rapidly. The time limit for famous Hong Kong Standard Chartered Marathon, for example is 5:30 hours The smaller, but more beautiful China Coast Marathon offers 10k, half and full marathon, virtually without time limit. There is one popular race walking event in Hong Kong, the "MTR Hong Kong Race Walking" in April with distances of up to 10 k.
