Kids opt for nature at Action Asia Kayak n Run

HONG KONG, May 3, 2018 –  The 10th edition of Action Asia Kayak N Run Series will be returning with the first leg at Deep Water Bay on Saturday, 5th May. The organiser Action Asia Events is offering two categories in this race - The Family Kayak N Run and the Adult Kayak N Run. Whether you are in it for quality time with your families or you are a competitive team, this event offers you the perfect opportunity to bond with your teammate and to explore the mountain and the sea in one morning.

The Family Category starts at 7:30 am which is designed for parents and kids to paddle for fun. Family teams will kayak around Deep Water Bay for 3km then start a 2.5km trail run. At 8:30 am, the Adult Race starts with 4km ocean kayak at Deep Water Bay and followed by 5km trail run. After kayaking, participants need to navigate by map reading to find checkpoints and reach the 430m Mount Nicholson then return to the finish line.  

Kevin Tse, an experienced runner who has participated in more than 10 Action Asia Events’ races mentioned that the coming Deep Water Bay race has become the family tradition and this year will be Kevin and his family’s the 4th Action Asia Kayak n Run race. “I run weekly just to keep fit and stay healthy and trail running is my main pre-race training. What I really enjoy about these races is that I get to team up with my sons for the family race! It is a great way to show them the importance of exercising, to inspire them to do more sports! All in all, I hope to have fun with my sons!” said Mr. Tse.

Among the family teams, French participants Nicolas Petit and his wife are joining the race with their kids. Petit has participated in multiple races before with his friend and this is his 2nd time joining the Deep Water Bay race with his family. “I always encourage my family to do trail running by inviting them to join the race and compete with me. I hope I can have fun with my family and that my kids enjoy this race as much as the previous races we competed in.” he shared.

The Action Asia Kayak n Run Series – Deep Water Bay could not happen without the generous support of Action X Store, C3fit, Salonsip, Key Sun Zinke, OL&N and Action Asia Foundation.
