Message from the Athletic Director

Greetings Running Enthusiasts, As I write this, we are reeling from the effects of Typhoon Manghkut and after seeing the devastation to the trees in our neighborhood, I can only hope that we will be able to run the course we have planned for October. Hong Kong is a resilient city and I am confident that which ever course is best suited for our run, each and every one of you will be surprised to find how green our city is. APAC has a long history of bringing international students together to compete. It is a time to reconnect with old friends you may have raced against last year or to make new friendships with new APAC peers. This is the first time we have hosted Cross Country and we hope that you enjoy running in the rolling hills around Tai Tam Reservoir which is located, more or less, in HKIS’ back yard. Run fast, run hard and enjoy the natural side of what most of the world thinks is a “concrete jungle.” Best of luck to each of you! Sincerely Sharon H. Leung
