RUN FOR A REASON
The Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon is Hong Kong's largest participatory annual sporting event. Commencing the first title sponsorship in 1997 with around 1,000 runners, Standard Chartered Bank (Hong Kong) Ltd is celebrating its 19th year as title sponsor and 73,000 participants for the 2015 event. Standard Chartered also sponsors marathons in 9 other cities globally including Taipei, Singapore, Mumbai, Nairobi, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Dubai, Stanley (Falkland Islands) and Jersey.
The Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon has been promoting the importance of living a healthy lifestyle that incorporates regular exercise. Participants enter the race for many reasons such as health, charity, unity and a greener environment.” RUN FOR A REASON” continues to be the Standard Chartered global marathon theme in ten cities around the globe. We believe that the theme will resonate with every one of our runners in Hong Kong and their supporters and will help to inspire each runner to the finish line.
