Sponsor: Our coverage of the Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon 2013 is sponsored by the Hong Kong SkyCity Marriott Hotel. Just 28 minutes from downtown Hong Kong and conveniently located near the airport, AsiaWorld-Expo and Hong Kong Disneyland, the 5-star luxury Hong Kong SkyCity Marriott Hotel is the ideal and affordable choice for MICE, business and leisure travelers.

Xtep International Holdings, a leading fashion sportswear enterprise in the P.R.C., has been named as the official uniform sponsor of the Marathon Team of The University of Hong Kong in 2013, jointly promoting marathon running as a healthy and enjoyable sport in Hong Kong.

Xtep will provide all runners, cheering teams and working parties of the HKU Marathon Team with a uniform to be worn at the Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon 2013, which will take place on 24 February 2013.

This is the second year in a row that Xtep has been appointed as the official apparel sponsor of the Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon.

Mr. Ding Shui Po, Chairman and CEO of Xtep said, "Xtep is honored to be the uniform sponsor of the HKU Marathon Team, which is one of the most established tertiary education institution marathon teams in Hong Kong. Running has been Xtep's core sport category, and marathons are the best way to demonstrate the dynamics of running. Both Xtep and the HKU Marathon Team share the belief that running helps nurture physical fitness and harness a strong mind with high perseverance. We will join hands together to call for participation in this Marathon, promoting the marathon running event as an energetic and joyful party for the runners. This sponsorship will bring the Xtep brand a step closer to a group of elites in Hong Kong. We look forward to fostering further cooperation with the HKU Marathon Team to jointly promote this healthy sport."

Xtep has chosen the X-light 100 fabric, an ultra light, quick dry and breathable sports fabric, for the HKU Marathon Team uniform this year to ensure all runners, cheering and support team members have the highest level of comfort.

Xtep has been the sporting partner of international marathons in over ten major cities in Mainland China, Taiwan and Hong Kong, promoting the "Run with Fun" spirit that encourages community-wide participation.
