The Tung Wah Group of Hos­pi­tals Char­ity Chal­lenge Race is ex­pected to sur­pass last year’s tally of 1,000 par­tic­i­pants when it kicks off on Lung Wo Road, Cen­tral, on Jan­uary 27. This year’s event, chaired by Philip Ma and spon­sored by LGT Pri­vate Bank­ing, has three cat­e­gories—the In­di­vid­ual Chal­lenge Race, the Team Chal­lenge Race (for teams of three or four col­leagues, friends or rel­a­tives), and a new cat­e­gory, the Hero Race. Those who dress up to run the 2,500-me­tre course, which in­cludes ob­sta­cles for par­tic­i­pants to hur­dle, will be in the run­ning to win the Best Cos­tume Award. Vir­tual re­al­ity and other game booths will be on hand for post-race en­ter­tain­ment. All funds raised will go to the TWGHS Devel­op­ment Fund of Kwong Wah Hospi­tal Re­de­vel­op­ment Pro­ject. www.tung­wah.org.hk
