SPECIAL ATTENTION : -
1. Green Half Marathon 2014 - An Early Start of Run ( 7:00am to 9:30am )
Due to continue increase of the traffic and the concern of usage of the Bride’s Pool Road by the public including the villages around Tai Po, Tai Mei Tuk areas, the Transport Department has put into effect from 2014 that approval for applications of temporary road closure ( ie from the beginning of Bride’s Pool Road at Ting Kok Road to Luk Keng covering Wu Kau Tang ) for holding sports events could only be given between the period of 6:30am to 9:30am. Under this circumstance, we have to arrange an early start and early finish of our road race event ( ie 7:00am to 9:30am ) in order to meet with Transport Department requirement for re-open the closed road for public traffic.
