Stone wins in his backyard while Vadovicova takes Women’s in Goodman Healthy Hike & Run

HONG KONG, Sunday May 22, 2022 – As one of the trail runners’ all-time favorite races, the Goodman Healthy Hike & Run was given permission to take place Sunday, May 22, after earlier postponement due to the pandemic with over 200 participants entering. Sticking with its popular and inclusive format, the event encourages participation from people of all ages and running abilities. With a focus on leaving no trace and carrying for the environment around the beautiful hiking trail around Tai Lam, the event once again offered three race categories – 5 km, 13km and 19km.

Hong Kong’s “Stone” Tsang Siu Keung grabbed the overall 19km win making it look easy as was trailing behind Leung Siu Pang around the 16km mark and took the lead in the final 3km pacing himself well. “This is my backyard as live close by and train here. Very beautiful racecourse. I really enjoyed today as good weather, nice course design and I believe this is my first real race in 3 years. Thank you so much Action Asia and Goodman for making it happen as the feeling of competing with runners seems familiar, but also a bit strange, anyway, I really enjoyed it as so happy to meet runners and chat with them” said overall 19km winner Tsang winning in 1 hour 41 minutes 46 seconds.

Hong Kong’s Leung Siu Pang grabbed 2nd overall in 1:43:15, with Matt Leng (Cambodia) grabbing 3rd overall in 1:44:50, Bernard Lee (Hong Kong) taking 4th overall in 1:45:34 and Jason Jia (Australia) taking 5th place overall in 1:46:25.

Grabbing the overall Women’s 19km title was Slovakian national - HK resident Veronika Vadovicova winning in 1 hour 44 minutes 50 seconds breaking the course record. “I’ve been living in HK almost 3 years. Today’s course was really nice very runnable and very fast we were lucky not to have sun so it wasn’t too hot even though we are near the end of May so overall super nice feelings, very good atmosphere and so happy to be racing again after such a long time because of Covid, yeah thank you everyone for putting this on” said overall Womens’ winner Vadovicova.

Wang Yuen Suen from Hong Kong took 2nd overall in the women’s in 2:09:28, Sherrin Loh (Australia) grabbed 3rd overall in the Women’s in 2:14:27, Kam Hay (Hong Kong) took 4th overall in 2:15:47 with Leung Woon Ping taking 5th overall in 2:17:24.
