Mark your 2021 calendar for the return of Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon on October 24. Retaining its World Athletics Gold Label Road Race status, the famous marathon has been attracting over 70,000 racers from Hong Kong and overseas. The 2020 race was suspended in light of the pandemic, but the organisers have reserved guaranteed entry for participants who registered in 2020 for the same-distance race.   Look forward to taking the 42km challenge or prep for the lighter course of 21 km or 10km. There's also an option for a 3km wheelchair race, a 2.2km Youth Dash, and a 1km Family Run in Tamar Park.
