Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Monday, 7 November 2011

The 16th Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon 2012 will take place on 5 February 2012 and runners are already getting prepared for their training.

The Hong Kong Amateur Athletic Association (HKAAA) is organizing a Marathon Training Clinic for runners which will cover appropriate running skill, breathing and running tempo and proper warm up exercise. The course is designed to help runners get the most out of their Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon experience.

The Marathon Training Clinic is co-organized by the HKAAA, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University's Department of Rehabilitation Sciences and Faculty of Health and Social Sciences and the Hong Kong Jockey Club Sports Medicine and Health Sciences Centre and will be conducted by renowned professional trainer Dr. Simon Yeung, Associate Professor, Department of Rehabilitation Sciences at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

Professor Yeung said, "The driving force for me to run this marathon clinic is to equip our novice runners with the knowledge of how best to themselves for their first 10km, half marathon and full marathon. Too often people just run without any preparation or planning and this can easily lead to injury. Preventing injury is the key to success and it will ensure runners have an enjoyable running experience."

The three-day marathon introductory course is open for registration and will take place on 4 December 2011. Entry deadline is on 29 November.
