    1 Background

    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 more sustainable city. By organising and staging this meaningful charity sports event, we encourage the public to implement greener choices and living habits in their daily lives, while embracing the competitive spirit found in long-distance runners for environmental responsibility.


    We continue to emphasise the principle of green measures and environmental protection in the 4th edition of Green Run, we will:

    • Not distribute bottled water or drinks. Instead, we will provide reusable water cups on the event day, and distribute reusable water bottles as souvenirs to encourage participants to reduce plastic waste

    • Set up plastic, metal, paper, glass and food waste recycling bins in prominent places to encourage clean recycling

    • Arrange with our sponsors to distribute food and souvenirs with simple packaging at the Post-run Party

    • Carefully select the type of food for the Post-run Party and estimate the amount of food based on the number of participants to reduce surplus food

     

    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 before 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.

    6 Runner's Bag
    Sports t-shirts have become a popular souvenir for participants. However, recent studies have found that man-made fibre materials for sports clothes will release microfibres during the washing process and flow into the sea. To reduce the pollution of the environment, this year we are proud to switch to other environmentally friendly souvenirs.
