MALCOLM PHILLIPS 5K RACE – 4PM SAT 12TH MAY 2018 – Results

AVOHK  organise this historic event in conjunction with the HKLRRC in memory of long time AVOHK and Ladies Road Runners member Malcolm Phillips, who so sadly died in May 2006.  Malcolm was a great AVOHK supporter and active member, both participating in races and as an organiser. He is so sorely missed by all but especially by the running community. Malcolm is always in our thoughts.

Thank you to all the volunteers that manned the checkpoints and provided the additional variety of refreshments to the runners.  Also a big thank you to the team that marked the  64K course the day before and to the team that delivered that all important commodity water (no bottles this year).  It was a wonderfully well organised race by Dave Smith the Race Director with much assistance from Catherine Leonard and great support from AVOHK Club members and many other volunteers.  The conditions at times were extremely challenging for everyone but the day ended with some nice weather.  Well done to all the winners in the various categories especially to the True Grit winner Brian McFlynn who won in a time of  5 hours 45 mins  which included a 25 minute penalty for arriving too early!! followed by Giuseppe Mollica in 6 hours.  In the ladies Charlotte Cutler and  Ann Cheng-Echevarria came in together in 6 hours 55 mins.  Thanks to all the runners and volunteers that attended the prize giving at Cafe 8 on Wed 18th April 2018.  It was a wonderful evening.  For any queries contact:  roundtheisland2018@gmail.com

A big thank you to all the runners that supported this years race.  Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and we were blessed with good weather.  Thanks also to all the many volunteers that helped AVOHK put on this event, the Community Chest, Echo’s walking group, Hong Kong Adventure Corps, Taiquain, AVOHK Club Members, the Hong Kong Police (great job on traffic control) and of course our sponsors Gammon who are so special to the China Coast Marathon.  AVOHK could not have put on this event without volunteer Race Directors Dave Smith and Catherine Leonard who spent many months planning and co-ordinating the 2018 Gammon Marathon and Half Marathon.  Dave & Catherine an outstanding job.  For all those asking, Catherine is making good progress after a traffic accident on 25th Jan and is now back at home recovering.

25th November 2017 – AVOHK 35th Aniversary Handicap Race

 

On Saturday 25th November AVOHK celebrated their 35th Anniversary having been formed in 1982.  A 5km handicap run was held in the afternoon starting at Wan Chai Gap over an undulating course.  Chief Handicapper Dave Smith used all his experience and knowledge to be as fair as possible and at the same time making it a fun event.  All claims that they were not that fit fell on deaf ears.  The field of 24 runners contained 1 ex Olympian, 2 former international swimmers and Albert the Dog.  An interesting mix.  Mr Lo was first away and all the runners were a bit concerned when they saw Mr Lo charging up the first hill.  Their fears were realized when Mr Lo came home over 10 minutes in front with a well deserved win followed by the evergreen John Fowler in 2nd place and Ross Milburn in 3rd.  Stuart Leckie making a welcome appearance on the roads and wearing a very historic AVOHK vest scored an impressive 4th place.  Peter Brown an out of town AVOHK Member with his very colorful long stockings and making a flying visit to Hong Kong finished in a credible 5th place.  Peter it was nice to see you again and thanks for dropping by.  Albert the only dog taking part brought up the rear just behind owner Rachel.  In accordance with IAAF rules Albert was removed from the results.  Results can be found here:  Click Here
