Our objective: The HKU Marathon Team is the first local
university marathon team to participate in the Standard Chartered Hong
Kong Marathon. Its objective is to encourage members of The University
of Hong Kong to participate in the sport of running. Running is a sport
that trains not only one's physical fitness but also one's mind,
particularly for endurance and perseverance.
Since 2006, over 9,300 members of the University have joined the HKU
Marathon Team. The Team has won the “Most Supportive Group Award” of the
Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon for the past nine years.
"This demonstrates the unity, dedication and spirit that we all share in the HKU

within the University family, bringing together
students, alumni, staff, families and friends."

"There are three characteristics commonly found
in a leader: a great mind, a fit body and the ability to
work in a team. HKU represents the best of minds, with
its graduates, staff and students."
