History of HKDRC 香 港 長 跑 會

HKDRC founded in 1978, one of the largest running organizations in Hong Kong with over 180 members, is an energetic contributor to the Hong Kong running scene. We organize two most popular races every year, including the Hong Kong Half Marathon at the beginning of the race season and Hong Kong Mount Butler Cross Country Race at the conclusion.

Our mission is to provide opportunities to local runners and the public thru participation of our races to lift their running skills and introduce to individuals to the healthy sport. The Club also holds a series of training runs and Trailwalker training programs. HKDRC members are active participants in the Macau, the Standard Chartered and the China Coast Marathons along with many other mid-to-long distance running races.
