Conquer the North Pole and explore endless possibilities
Every step forward is a challenge in this rugged white wilderness! With the same persistence attitude, the 11-runner team created their own possibilities in every step of the way.
This year FWD is going further than ever! We are backing the North Pole Marathon! A team of Hong Kong runners including a disabled runner will join others fitness enthusiasts from Asia to form a team of 11 to run this amazing race. In the spirit of One Team One FWD and the passion of "We Are What We Can", they will explore countless possibilities above 89° N and raise money for the Hong Chi Association and Special Olympics Hong Kong.
Runners from all over the world will overcome the harsh weather conditions to compete in the coolest marathon on earth.
Thank you for your participation!
Our North Pole Marathon runners - Gi Ka Man, Leung Siu Wai and Chik Wing Keung, are not just running to break their own boundaries, they are also running to raise money for the Special Olympics Hong Kong and the Hong Chi Association.
You can do the same!
Start running and keep track of how far you run. For everyone who accumulates 42,195 kilometers or more (one full marathon) - we will donate a total of HK $ 50 for each successful record to Special Olympics Hong Kong, and the Hong Chi Association once. With the support and participation from the public, the campaign has raised HK$100,000 for the two charitable organizations.
Going to the North Pole, you have to be well prepared. You also need to try to shorten the distance to the Pole in advance! Gi Ka Man, Gary Leung Siu Wai and Andy Chik Wing Keung, who will be representing FWD Hong Kong in the North Pole Marathon this year, decided to simulate polar living before they left to for the race.
The competition will be hold in the Arctic Ocean in the Arctic Circle, the huge and thick ice in around beyond 89° -90°N. This is the first ever ice marathon in the world.
