Running has become popular in Hong Kong. Running has lots of benefits, from improving the cardiorespiratory system to maintaining a good body shape. Moreover, it also trains perseverance.

 

Apart from providing free training sessions, we will also take students to competitions. Through the process of challenging their own records, we hope to develop their eagerness for improvement.
Our coaches Mr Chan Ka Ho and and Ms Yiu Kit Ching are the best runners in Hong Kong. They are both our coaches and ambassadors. , They are great models for our students to look up to.

Sharing & Feedback

I grew up in an underprivileged family as well,  just like any IHKSports students. That is why I support IHKSports, because I want to offer them chances that I wish I had when I was young.


It has been three years since I became a coach for RUN Inspires!. I am glad to see the changes of attitude and running performance in our students. One student even entered the Hong Kong team! I hope that I can discover more students with great potential but at the same time I want to encourage all students one thing ─ no matter whether you are earning prizes or not, the most important thing is you are breaking through your own limits.

Coach – Ka Ho

Running has greatly improved my perseverance. I used to just play video games but now long distance running has become my favourite pastime. I now run more than 30km when I get the chance. I also love the camaraderie I have developed with my running mates. When I am in a group, I no longer shy away, but make friends with people.
