The 2009 Olympic Day Run (ODR) is going to be held in an all new setting – the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort area this year!!! With the starting point at Hong Kong Disneyland Coach Park, the route will take you along the tree-lined boulevards towards Sunny Bay, and will pass through the picturesque Inspiration Lake, covering a distance of close to 5km.
The theme of this annual “Sport for All” event is “Move, Learn and Discover”, inspiring people to learn and discover the delights of life through exercising. We have also added the theme “Hong Kong’s Readiness for 5th East Asian Games” this year to welcome the East Asian Games. Do show your support and join the run at 8:00am on 28 June 2009!
