“SHKP Vertical Run for Charity” has expanded its scale since 2014 with two stops including Race to Hong Kong ICC and Race to Shanghai IFC. The Race to Hong Kong ICC is once again the grand finale of Vertical World Circuit, bringing international top runners to compete at International Commerce Centre for the World Champion title. Finish line is located at the sky100 Hong Kong Observation Deck on the 100th floor of the ICC, there are elite, individual and relay races for runners to race up the 2,120 stairs, and Fun Climb for people who want to try a more relaxed version of stair climbing. Youth relay created in 2014 was getting popular among schools, and attracted participation of 30 teams of students coming from 18 districts of Hong Kong, whom have powered up the event with their energy.
Both races in Hong Kong and Shanghai started a craze for vertical running and attracted almost 3,100 runners from more than 36 countries and regions to enjoy the fun of vertical run with the world-class elites while contributing to worthy causes to support youth and child services in both locations.
