Malcolm Phillips 5km
AVOHK organise this 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 sorely missed.
The Malcolm Phillips Memorial 5km is an age graded 5km. The inaugural race was held at 4.00 pm, March 17th 2007 at Wanchai Gap. Full results for this inaugural race 2007, ladies' and men's are attached. The 2008 Race was held on May 10th at Wanchai Gap Playground, on the same 5km course as 2007 and the results once again were age graded. Rachel Sproston and Stefano Pasarello tok the honours both overall and once graded, they were too fast for the oldsters despite the age adjusted times.
The 2009 race heralded a change of venue - Bowen Road, safer and more suitable for the early Summer weather. The course is an accurate 5km and is the same as the AVOHK 5km race held in the autumn. winners were Keith Chan and Gillian Castka.
