Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon 2020

6:10am

The Standard Chartered Marathon Hong Kong Marathon 2019 is a signature event in Hong Kong’s sporting calendar. Attracting thousands of racers from Hong Kong and all over the world, it has become one of the most popular marathons in Asia.

The race has had such an overwhelming response in recent years that the organizers have had to increase the quota numbers time and time again. There was an incredible enrolment of 74,000 in 2019, and similar numbers expected for 2020.

There are a number of various categories, but the most popular are the full marathon which is 42km long, the half marathon at 21km, and the 10k run.

In addition, there is a Family Run, a Youth Dash, and a 10km and 3km Wheelchair race too, making it an event open for all levels of competitors.

The full marathon takes runners on a challenging route from Nathan Road in Tsim Sha Tsui, up into Kowloon, over the Stonecutter’s Bridge through Tsing Yi island. Runners then make their way back down into Kowloon, through the Western Harbour Tunnel to Hong Kong Island, and finish at Victoria Park in Causeway Bay.

A great place to catch the race is of course on Nathan Road, as well as on Hennessy Road in Wan Chai, heading to the finish line at Victoria Park.
