Chartered Hong Kong Marathon on February 12.

is the most senior runner in the Team.
A big THANK YOU to over 13,000 runners and
3,000 Support Team members who have joined the HKU Marathon Team from
2006 to 2017.

The HKU Marathon Team was founded by Professor
Paul Cheung in 2006 with the aim of promoting the sport of running and
the spirit of marathon. It is also the first local university marathon
team which has participated in the Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon
and won the "Most Supportive Group Award" since 2006. Together, let's
continue the HKU marathon spirit.
Together, we have won the Most Supportive
Group Award for the 12th consecutive year (2006 - 2017).
