News: HK Marathon 2012

Thank you for your support to the Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon 2012. Due to the overwhelming public response, the application quotas for ALL race categories are now full. Both online and mail-in entries are no longer being accepted.

The Marathon Secretariat is now checking ALL applications received and will be making an announcement in due course of any places that may be available for a second round of online registration.

Should there be a second round of online registration, advance notice will be made on the marathon website and in the media.

Hi! I think for foreign runners, they accept entries during friday and saturday before the sunday run.I think it is also stated in the online reg. form.

Hi nonoy, I think this should be applicable for all runners as there was no mention that it is just for local runners

In the reg. Form, it says:
For oversees participants only:
will be accepted feb.3-4, 2012,
marathon secretariat, victoria park, HK. 60 US dollars entry fee.
pwede pa. join it in 2009, i register a day before the run. dati ang cut-ff 5:30, now 6 hrs. There is also cut off times along the way.

Hi nonoy and running fatboy,

So is it guaranteed that overseas applicants can apply for the race on Feb 3/4 even though the quota has been reached? I haven't applied online and now it's impossible to.

So can I just show up on Feb 4, with $60USD and a passport and still race the next day??
