The annual prestigious sport event, Olympic Day Run is scheduled to be held on 20 June 2004 (Sunday) at 8:30am at Wanchai Sport Ground.
The theme of this year’s Run is “Support Hong Kong Delegation to the 2004 Athens Olympic Games”. The organizer, the Sports Federation & Olympic Committee of Hong Kong, China (SF&OC) is pleased to have the fully support of McDonald’s Restaurants (Hong Kong) Limited to be the title sponsor of this event.
To add colour to the event, complimentary pedometers supplied by McDonald’s will be provided to around 2,000 members of the general public and McDonald’s crew participating in the event for steps counting. It is anticipated that the total distance to be covered by participants of the day will approximately equal to the distance from Hong Kong to Athens, (i.e. 9,000km), which also symbolizes general public’s support to the Hong Kong Delegation to the Athens Olympic Games.
In addition, a Torch Run jointly organized by the SF&OC and the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) would also be introduced as part of the event to celebrate the coming Olympic Games. Representatives of the 18 Districts will be invited to form Olympic rings at the centre of grass pitch as a gesture of support to the Hong Kong athletes’ participation in the 2004 Athens Olympic Games.
The run is now open for enrollment with 2,000 quotas at first-come–first–served basis; the closing date of entry is 11 June 2004 (Friday). For registration, please download the Entry Form here.
