CAN RUN 2018

CAN RUN 2018


Inspired by the Barkley Marathons, one of the most challenging ultra trail races in the world, Trailblazer will organize its first trail running event – CAN RUN 2018. We have incorporated some of the Barkley Marathons’ features into the CAN RUN, such as collecting book pages, having no time chips, etc. As a continuation of the Charity Premiere “Where Dreams Go To Die – Gary Robbins and the Barkley Marathons”, we will continue to support Christian Zheng Sheng College through this trail running event. The idea of “CAN RUN” originated from the food banks on the island at Zheng Sheng College where “CAN food” is required to feed their students and staff under extreme weather conditions, when no public transportation is available to replenish food supply. The word “CAN” represents both “CAN” food as well as Trailblazer’s belief that everybody “CAN” RUN!

香港山賽眾多各具其獨特性,Trailblazer首辦山跑賽CAN RUN,以被喻為史上難度極高、成功完成率極低的美國超馬越野賽The Barkley Marathons巴克利馬拉松為藍本所啟發,包括不採用計時晶片、比賽中完成指定“任務”,希望將此項非常具話題性比賽的獨特性、趣味性以及一定難度帶到香港,刺激一下香港山友跑友對比賽的新鮮感及挑戰性。 此外,CAN RUN的慈善應援是今年3月份“Where Dreams Go To Die – Gary Robbins and the Barkley Marathons”香港慈善首映禮的延續篇,受惠團體基督教正生書院,因校舍位置偏遠,有機會因惡劣天氣、交通不便導致“斷水斷糧”的情況,自設“食物銀行”存放罐頭類食物,以應付全校師生及職員的膳食需要。因此,“CAN RUN”的由來一方面指罐頭,一方面帶出Trailblazer鼓勵人人能跑的信念,期待你/妳的參與,一場既有趣又有意義的比賽。

Race Details

CAN RUN has 2 different routes, 4km & 18km. Similar to the Barkley Marathons, it is a race WITHOUT time chips. Each runner is required to carry a “CAN food” from the starting line, through the race and across the finish line. The can food will be donated to the food bank at Christian Zheng Sheng College. Apart from the can food, runners are also required to collect book pages at designated areas. At the finishing point, both the CAN food and book pages will be checked to mark the completion of the run. Prizes will be granted to the first 3 runners or groups of runners who meet the completion requirements. (The expiry date for the CAN food should be beyond Dec 2019)

CAN RUN是一項香港舉行的山跑賽,共2條賽道,分別有4公里及18公里,參照巴克利馬拉松,賽事並不採用計時晶片。CAN RUN賽事要求,包括每名參加者必須捐出1罐罐頭(最終捐贈與基督教正生書院食物銀行),進行賽事時沿途攜帶(起點至終點),及每隊必須在大會賽道的指定多個位置撕去及保留指定的書頁,全隊一同將罐頭及書頁帶到終點衝線完成,以大會最佳時間成功完成的頭3名/隊伍將分別成為該組別的冠、亞及季軍得主。(罐頭有效期必須在2019年12月以後)
