2021 AVOHK China Coast Marathon and Half Marathon has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 situation. Planning will start to hold the next event in Jan 2022. Provisional date will be announced shortly. Watch this space.
Please note AVOHK only organise the China Coast Half and Full Marathon, however at the same venue on the same day the Community Chest are holding the Corporate Challenge a team event with a half marathon and a 10km course. AVOHK facilitate these races and provide the marshals and on course support but entry to these are through the Community Chest of Hong Kong, www.commchest.org
PLEASE READ these Important Notices:
There is no pre race race pack collection all numbers are given out on the morning of the races, bring your confirmation email to pick up the bib.
DO NOT swap number bibs – it messes up the results and causes alot of administrative hassle when sorting out the 5 year age group prizes and AVOHK member prizes.
We disqualify those who swap bibs.
We do not run a waiting list for places, we take more runners in advance knowing that there will be a no show rate . This allows us to enrol more runners up front.
To reflect AVOHK’s diverse membership we are now awarding AVOHK members prizes to both the top 3 AVOHK members under 40 and top 3 AVOHK members over 40 runners in the full and the half marathons. You had to be a member at time of registration.
The John Lane Tankard is awarded to the fastest AVOHK member in the Full Marathon.
AVOHK members please wear your AVOHK kit .
Both races have prizes in open (18-34) and thereafter 5 year age groups .
Marathon runners will be stopped at around 23 km if the race marshalls deem them not able to complete the course in the time limit. Our helpers want to leave the course by 2pm.
We still need help on course please volunteer. OUR CLUB NEEDS YOU.
