The first phase of registration for the 17th Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon, featuring the Marathon, Half Marathon and Wheelchair Races, will start tomorrow, 24 October 2012 at 7am.
Registration for the 10km will commence on 31 October 2012. Entry quotas will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis, and the registration deadline is 30 November 2012.
The 17th Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon will take place on 24 February 2013.
Chairman of the Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon 2013 Organizing Committee, William Ko, said, "We expect the majority of participants will register through our online system. To avoid online traffic congestion, two separate registration periods are offered to participants joining different races. We hope this will smooth out the enrollment process."
The entry fee is HK$300, and applicants registering online via the official website will receive instant confirmation upon successful application.
Marathon participants are reminded to assess their own fitness prior to registration to decide which race category to enter, and to allow themselves adequate preparation and proper training to achieve optimal performance on race day.
