The Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon is an iconic running event, founded in 1997. This year, zx42195 is proud to offer a package that includes a guaranteed entry for the 2020 Marathon (Full Marathon), two nights stay at a 5-star hotel right next to the finish line. Every year, around 70,000 runners participate in the marathon, 10km run and the half marathon. Runners should note that due to the high levels of humidity and the difficult course, finishing times tend to be slower than other large marathons. The Hong Kong Marathon was first awarded an IAAF Bronze Label Road Races by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) in 2012, and has since then been upgraded to an IAAF Silver Label Road Races in 2013. We would also like to invite all runners to join us for our Most Supportive Group Award Competition. This competition, established in 2006, aims to reward team entries for the Marathon, as well as promote team spirit. Companies or Organizations can qualify for this competition by forming a marathon group with a minimum of 100 members.
