1 Background

The Green Run was first held in 2016 to raise public awareness about environmental conservation, protection and responsibility, as well as to promote the transformation of Hong Kong into a greener and more sustainable city. By organising and staging this meaningful charity sporting event, we encourage the public to implement greener choices and living habits in their daily lives, while taking a serious approach to environmental responsibility by embracing the competitive spirit found in long-distance runners. This winning attitude requires determination and perseverance.

2 Race Info

2.1 Race Prelude – 6 Green Missions (六綠任務)
6 Green Missions is easy to execute, but difficult to persist. In this prelude challenge, race participants will receive a list of green missions from the runner’s bag three weeks in advance of the race. Runners will need to choose six missions out of the list of fifty. If they are able to complete the selected green missions six days in a row, and share their results on Instagram, outstanding participants can gain a prize at Green Run Award Presentation Ceremony.
