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 is always in our thoughts.

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
