The Law Society Distance Running Team competed in this year’s Rotary Hong Kong Ultramarathon on 4 March. As in past years, the charity event was held at Lung Wo Road, Central and attracted many teams and individual athletes.
Despite the humid and warm weather, the eight-member strong Law Society team successfully completed the 50km relay race. Encouraged by supportive cheers along the way, the team collectively ran well over 20 laps of the road with eight super smooth relay baton handovers.
With a finishing time under 4 hours and 10 mins, our fabulous efforts earned the team second runner-up place in the community service competition. With big smiles, we proudly received the shiny Rotary cup and medals on the podium. Well done to all team members for the amazing running performance! Our team included Past President Simon Ip, Mr. Patrick Chan, Mr. Calvin Lau, Mr. Colin Cheng, Mr. Cho Kin-Fung, Mr. Sonny Lam, Distance Running Convenor Ms. Catherine Lau and Distance Running Captain Mr. John Y.C. Lee.
Thanks to Rotary International District 3450 and the Hong Kong Amateur Athletic Association for jointly organising the event, which aims to inspire people to make a positive contribution to the community and to create awareness of the importance in maintaining good mental health.
See you at the next team event or fun workouts!
