Want to step away from your workstation and have a blast of fresh air? Join the 6th edition of Outward Bound Multi Race, held on 15 October (Sun), which promises to offer the participants a taste of all the features typically found in these endurance tests.
The Race will take place over a 13km course and require teams of two. Starting and finishing in the Sai Kung areas, it will include the usual disciplines of trail running, orienteering, kayaking and swimming, etc. in a superb environment. This year a new category “Parent-Child” at a shorter course of 5Km will be introduced with the aim to promote family bonding and to raise the interest towards sport in our younger ones.
Proceeds of the race will be used to support young Hong Kong people who would otherwise not have the means or opportunity, to access challenging and adventurous Outward Bound courses. These courses help young people in developing their self-confidence, skills and positive attitudes, which in turn aids future success at school, work and for life.
