This year, with the new event Pink 5K Run, Pink Heels Race has broken previous records with more than 530 participants! Everyone enjoyed the run as well as the fun charity booths, making it a wonderful Sunday at Stanley.

 

The event kick started with the Pink 5K Run in the morning. The new route extended form Stanley all the way to Chung Hom Kok passing by the Ma Hang Park brought a whole new experience for runners who were encouraged to challenge themselves with the stairs and slopes along the track and at the same time, enjoy the beautiful scenery. The warm up led by Star Trainer Ms. Utah Lee set the rhythm for the race where other Star Runners arrived early to prepare for the run. The race started at 10:30, more than 400 runners gathered at the starting arch and ran full speed as the horn was sound. With spectacular results, the men and women champions each won an exceptional prize - a watch sponsored by Baume et Mercier.

 

The Kickoff Ceremony for Pink Heels Race was held at 12pm at the Stanely Plaza Amphitheatre. Officiating guest Hong Kong Team Swimmer Ms. Stephanie Au shared her experience in running 5K at Stanley. Star Runners also shared their feelings about the run and agreed that the race was very meaningful with the challenging track  symbolizing the obstacles cancer patients need to go through fighting the illness. Pink Heels Race kicked start immediately after the ceremony. The Pink Heels Race consisted of 4 categories, Men/Women Individual, Team and Family Race where awareness of hereditary cancers was raised through the games designed for the races.
