HONG KONG (December 9, 2020) Give your new year’s resolutions an extra boost with RUN INTO 2021, Hong Kong’s first-ever NYE virtual run. Taking place from December 31, 2020 (Thursday) to January 15, 2021 (Friday), the virtual run is jointly organised by FEED HK and Project-108, with full support from livi bank.
2020 has been a challenging year for many, but also opens up opportunities for innovation, creativity and new beginnings. Under the theme of “A New New Start”, RUN INTO 2021 offers a refreshing perspective to the local running scene. A racing event that sees no limitations in location or time, bringing together enthusiasts eager to commence the new year with a vibrant spirit. For good measure, a portion of the proceeds will go to the Early Psychosis Foundation , in support of its high-quality early psychosis intervention services, professional trainings, and public awareness programmes.
More Than Just a Run:
An Activation of Wellness and Fun
The event will start with a virtual countdown party on Project-108’s Youtube channel. A series of entertaining and informative programmes will be featured on New Year’s Eve to welcome all to 2021.
To cater for the myriad of lifestyles in the city, the run itself is designed to be flexible and friendly. Participants can take part in the 3KM Fun Run, 5KM Power Run or 10KM Achiever Run at anytime, anywhere of their preference by simply tracking their run with any mobile application with a pedometer function. They can then submit a screen-cap of their run record with participation date, time and distance and a running photo to firstname.lastname@example.org to finish the race. A personalised e-certificate will be presented upon completion.
Participants of RUN INTO 2021 will also receive a runner’s pack valued at HK$800, which comes with a limited-edition RUN INTO 2021 souvenir T-shirt, an exclusive finisher medal, three MaskOn masks and discount vouchers from supporting brands such as Casetify and Lane-eight.
“Everyone can start their new year without the limits of time and location. RUN INTO 2021 encourages every one of us to take up new roles and new tasks to challenge oneself, to ring in 2021 anytime and anywhere with sweat and determination.” said Kim Yuen, founder of FEED HK and Project-108.
Michelle Chan, Director, Marketing, Business Development & Innovation of livi bank, said, “We’re pleased to be supporting RUN INTO 2021.
