Outward Bound Multi-Race 2018

ABOUT THE ACTIVITY

Want to step away from your workstation and have a blast of fresh air? Join the 7th edition of Outward Bound Multi Race, held on 30 September 2018 (Sun). The event tends to take you and your team mate out of your comfort zones and push you to your limits by demanding physical endurance, teamwork and navigational ability in unfamiliar surroundings while having a fun day out.

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 in a superb environment. Following the success of the last round of the Parent and Child route, it is making the event a long-awaited return with an 8km option to promote family bonding.

As a not-for-profit making organisation, we provide funded experiences for participants from a range of backgrounds who otherwise would not have the opportunity to attend. Proceeds will be used to allow rehabilitating drug users, survivors of cancers, those with physical and visual impaired, deaf groups and disadvantaged youth to attend our life-changing programmes which help to develop their self-confidence, skills and positive attitudes, which are crucial to their future success at school, work and for life.

Your participation is an investment in future generations, the future workforce, future leaders and the future of HK.
