The first phase of registration for the much anticipated Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon 2014 will start Tuesday, 15 October 2013, at 7am with the 42.195km Marathon event.

Registration for the Half Marathon, 10km and Wheelchair Races will take place on 22 October, 29 October and 5 November respectively.

Chairman of the Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon 2014 Organizing Committee, William Ko, said, "In light of the overwhelming response to registration in previous years, we decided this year to divide the registration into different phases. We hope the separate phases will alleviate online traffic congestion, bringing a smooth registration process for all."

Applicants can register online via the official website. All runners who register online will find out immediately whether their application has been successful, making this both a convenient and an environmentally friendly option. The entry fee remains HK$300. Further information about the event is available on the official website, or from the enquiry hotline: 2577 0800.

The Hong Kong Amateur Athletics Association (HKAAA) has recommended that participants assess their own fitness prior to registration, and choose their race based on their own preferences and abilities.

 To help runners achieve optimum performance and run safely and enjoyably in the Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon 2014, "Team Marathon Experts" (Team ME) will be available for runners for the second consecutive year.

 Made up of experts with a wide array of specializations, Team ME will emphasize the importance of adequate training and preparation, and its members will regularly share running experiences and training tips on the official website.
