2009 Olympic Day Run in Hong Kong
The 2009 Olympic Day Run (ODR) is going to be held in an all new setting - the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort area this year!!! With the starting point at Hong Kong Disneyland Coach Park, the route will take you along the tree-lined boulevards towards Sunny Bay, and will pass through the picturesque Inspiration Lake, covering a distance of close to 5km.
The theme of this annual "Sport for All" event is "Move, Learn and Discover", inspiring people to learn and discover the delights of life through exercising. We have also added the theme "Hong Kong's Readiness for 5th East Asian Games" this year to welcome the East Asian Games.
Under the patronage of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the ODR is organized by Sports Federation & Olympic Committee of Hong Kong, China (SF&OC), subvented by Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) and co-organized by Hong Kong Amateur Athletic Association (HKAAA).
The ODR is open for individuals of all ages and corporate teams. Parents and children are encouraged to join the run as a family day activity as well as to cultivate a sporting lifestyle for the children.
