Long Ducker is one of the charitable traditions taken from Harrow School in England. Every year at Harrow, boys, teachers, Old Harrovians and parents combine to organise and undertake a charity sponsored run, the Long Ducker. Now in its seventh year, the Hong Kong version takes place annually along a 16km route on the MacLehose trail that runs immediately behind the School. The alternative 8km Short Ducker & Mini Ducker, allows participation of whole school community.
Unfortunately, due to the Covid19 pandemic, we had to cancel our event for 2020.
However, on 16th May 2020, we hope the Harrow Hong Kong community will join us in completing the Virtual Long Ducker! We would like the community to travel the following distance of their choice. This could be completed by walking, running, cycling, rollerblading, skateboarding, rowing and swimming to name a few.
At the end of the chosen distance, each participant must be able to provide evidence of the distance completed and the date. This could be done by using any tracking device, pedometer, Fit Bit, Apple watch or MapMyRun-style app. Google Earth is a great resource if you would like to plan out the distance prior to the challenge.
The Categories are:
(Units, where necessary, have been rounded up for ease of calculation.)
All staff, pupils & their families from those in the Early Years to the oldest in Year 13, can run/walk/cycle/swim/etc and all be part of the Virtual Long Ducker Day on 16th May 2020.
