1. HKDRC 40th Green Half Marathon and 10k – Cancellation of Event and Payment Refund

We came across bad time on cancellation of our 40th Green Half Marathon and 10k on 5 November 2017 due to the rejection of road closure by Sha Tau Kok Rural Committee ( STKRC ) from an unresolved traffic problem. We suffered a financial loss up to one hundred thousand dollars from the cancellation of event. Up to the end of November, we completed the payment refunding work for 400 registered participants.

We sincerely thank to our sponsors’ and runners’ understanding and special thank to Olympic Travel Services Co. borrowed the office space for our refunding of payment work.

We will strive our best to coordinate with STKRC and relevant Government Departments to re-organize our 40th Green Half Marathon and 10k at the same course in November 2018.
