Countdown for Goodman Healthy Hike has begun

 The Countdown to the Goodman Healthy Hike & Run Has Begun

HONG KONG, [March 1, 2023] – With travel borders re-opened and spring just around the corner, it’s time to gear up for the hiking & trail running season.

The Goodman Healthy Hike & Run will take place on Saturday March 4th, 2023, welcoming hikers, runners and outdoor enthusiasts from Hong Kong and abroad. The Goodman Healthy Hike & Run aims to promote the beautiful hiking trails around Hong Kong and supports environmental initiatives such as “leave no trace”.

Kristoffer Harvey, Chief Executive Officer, Greater China at Goodman Group, said: “We are excited to participate as the title sponsor of the Goodman Healthy Hike & Run Race once again. As the city opens its door to travellers from around the world, this race will provide an opportunity for visitors and local residents to experience the natural beauty of Hong Kong.”

Harvey added: “As well as getting some fresh air and enjoying the scenic Tai Lam trails, the race is also a reminder for us to care for the environment and embrace sustainability in our lives.  Our continued partnership with Action Asia highlights our commitment to environmental initiatives such as the “leave no trace” concept and reducing waste.”

The race takes place on Saturday March 4th, 2023 setting off from the Tai Tong Shan Road BBQ area. Runners in the 19km race will start first at 7:30 am with a five-hour time limit, with the 13km and 5km runners to follow. After making their way into the Tai Lam Country Park, the three routes will separate but will all loop back to the Yuen Tun Trail.

To enhance the enjoyment of the hike and run journey and reduce waste, fruit and water will be provided at checkpoints and at the finish line, but runners will need to bring their own bottles or flasks. Shuttle bus services will be provided to the location from Admiralty, Prince Edward and Shatin. Participants of all ages are welcome, with those below the minimum age must be accompanied by an adult.

Michael Maddess, Director of Action Asia Events said: “We are grateful to Goodman for once again making this event possible. It is a source of pride for us to partner with a company that sees investment in sustainability, health and wellbeing as a priority. We are looking forward to welcoming a diverse group of local and overseas runners to join us this weekend.

The event is organised by Action Asia Events and is made possible by the generous support of title sponsor Goodman Group, as well as partners including Royale International, Action X Store, Watsons Water, Del Monte, C3fit, Gwei·lo, Bix Hydration, innocent, Savewo, Singha beer, St John, Pocari Sweat, CEO House, New Life Plastics and Ocean Recovery Alliance.
