IET Hong Kong has been supporting the Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon since 2006. Being one of the major events in our 30th Anniversary Celebration Programme, the Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon 2018 is the largest outdoor sporting event in Hong Kong which attracted top runners from around the globe and over 74,000 runners participated in the mega event this year!
On 21st January 2018, with a training session on 13th January 2018, high spirit, sufficient warm up and cheered by our supporting team, all 18 runners from Branch Committee, Power and Energy Section, Electronics and Communications Section and Younger Members Section, successfully finished the races (10km, half and full marathon). They were warmly greeted when they passed through the finishing line by all the supporting teammates. Both the participants and supporting teammates really enjoyed this annual event very much with a lot of photos taken during the race and fun of course.
We have ultimately achieved the objective of this activity – promoting IET in Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon and strengthening the connection among committee members. On behalf of the Organising Committee, John Chan from Branch Committee would like to send his deepest gratitude to our runners and supporting team who made this event a successful end! Thanks all once again and hope all of you would continue to support this meaningful event!
Let’s run again together on 17th February 2019!
