"SHKP Vertical Run for Charity" has expanded its scale in 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. Newly created Youth Relay and Open Relay encourage youngsters' participation, while a new group is added to the Fun Climb welcoming children aged 10 or above to experience the fun of vertical running with their parents.
Both races in Hong Kong and Shanghai started a craze for vertical running and attracted almost 2,400 runners from more than 35 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.
