ESF Run 2019

At the ESF HK Run on the 26 Jan 2019 the running team brought the Island School spirit to the Hong Kong Science Park. One of the 4 A-grade teams and the B-grade team took second place in the School Relay, receiving trophies along with finisher medals. Island School staff participated in the 10km race earlier that morning.

The Schools Relay was a 4 x 2.5km relay, totalling a 10km run. A carnival ran alongside the event, with student run games stands and performances from schools across ESF including the primary schools. Leanna Spencer (12E), who ran in one of the A-grade teams said, “It [the day] was great fun… I really enjoyed watching the cute kids from Kennedy School do their dragon dance.”

The run was in support of “2 Billion Kilometers to Safety”, a movement launched by the UNHCR to bring awareness to the resilience of refugees.

The event was open to the public. Find out more at https://hkrun.esf.edu.hk/en
