This month, we’re highlighting RUN Charity Race because we love how it combines a great cause, the thrill of a challenge, and a fun family-friendly day out!

With race season coming upon us soon and so many events to choose from, we wanted to highlight one of our favourites – the RUN Charity Race, taking place on Saturday, 10 November, in Tai Tam Country Park. With four options to choose from (14km, 19km, 19km team of 2, and 2.5km kids race), there’s something for everyone to get out for a fun trail race and raise funds to benefit refugees in Hong Kong. 

RUN charity race

RUN is a local NGO that rehabilitates refugees through running and other sports. There are around 6,000 refugees in Hong Kong, many of whom have fled some of the world’s most serious human rights abuses in some of the hardest places to call home. Having fled dangerous situations back at home, they continue to experience the trauma of being a refugee in Hong Kong, with little or no support.

RUN aims to empower the most vulnerable refugees, particularly women, offering them the opportunity to rehabilitate and recuperate through running and other sports. Running is just the beginning – once in a better state of mind, RUN also offers education, mentorship, and leadership training programmes designed to prepare refugees for their future, and all programmes are complemented by support services, including childcare, social, psychological, and emergency assistance that ensures each refugee receives the full support they need.

Hong Kong Kong Running

In its second year running (pun intended), the RUN Charity Race sets itself apart by being truly by refugees, in benefit of refugees. Sixteen refugees will be personally challenging themselves to complete the race! For some of them, this will be their first race, for others, this represents another goal on their journey to healing, freedom, and advancement. Those who aren’t competing in the race will help out with the logistics – from manning checkpoints to performing music and preparing tasty food for finishers.

The race also serves as RUN’s biggest annual fundraiser, helping to raise critical funds for its sports and education programmes to rehabilitate vulnerable refugees. With a kids race event in the mix, it’s also a great opportunity to teach your kids about charity and giving back to the community.
