About Event

Welcome to the first ever annual Junior Soccer Virtual Run and Hike Challenge called Loop the Island, organised by Hong Kong Football Club in partnership with KELY Support Group. During the time we are living through, we know that there is nothing more important than keeping active to help our physical and mental health and Loop the Island is designed to do exactly that. From the 26 February to the 27 March, we’re looking to see how many kilometres the Junior Soccer family (players, players’ families, coaches, friends and anyone else!) can accumulate and hence how many times we can virtually circumnavigate the approximately 60KM Hong Kong Island coastal path. This will be a great chance for us all to get our fitness back before football hopefully restarts.

All you’ll need to do is to create a free account on Strava, join our Strava Club then get moving and track the kilometres. Any kilometres count, whether it’s a walk with your family, a run around a track, a trail run or hike or anything! The key is to get moving and help us loop Hong Kong Island as many times as possible. We’ll be tracking the total and will have an informal competition between our various age groups to see which group can do the most distance in the month.

We’re using SimplyGiving to fundraise to support two organisations focused on mental health of Hong Kong children and youth: KELY Support Group and The WeezProject. Anyone who achieves 60km or more in the month will receive a special commemorative gift.

Good luck and look forward to seeing your kilometres come through! Let's loop the island together.
