Analysis on the 10km race route

Expert: Mr. Chan Ka Ho – Winner of Men’s 10km Challenge of the Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon 2012

Key Points:

  • There is a gentle downhill slope in the first 5km of the race route so most of the runners would run faster than they have planned and hence affect their overall performance. So remember not to start too fast at the beginning of the race.
  • Runners are recommended to save some energy for the uphill slope after the turning point at Sai Wan Ho.
  • Be reminded that there is a steep uphill slope in the last 1km. Although it’s only 50 – 60m long, it is the most inclined part of the whole route. It is very close to the finishing line so keep up your spirit and get through it!
