The Race

The Wellcome Team FEAR Junior Challenge is an adventure race for young people aged between 8 and 18.  It is held in Discovery Bay at the end of November every year.

Teams swim, run, mountain bike, coasteer, jump into water and solve puzzles around Discovery Bay.

An important part of the Race is the sponsorship that competitors raise for the charity Youth Outreach.  For the last few years we have been able to give over HK$100,000 to the Charity.

There are three age groups with the following categories:

Juniors (Teams of 3)
Under 9 (aged 8 on the day of the race)
Under 10 (aged 9 on the day of the race)
Under 11 (aged 10 on the day of the race)
Intermediates (Teams of 2)
Under 12 (aged 11 on the day of the race)
Under 13 (aged 12 on the day of the race)
Seniors (Teams of 2)
Under 14 (aged 13 on the day of the race)
Under 16 (aged 15 or under on the day of the race)
Under 19 (aged 18 or under on the day of the race)

Team FEAR Registration Full for Juniors and Intermediates
We have filled all the places currently available across Juniors and Intermediates for this year's Race but if you were not successful, please register your team's details in the waiting list and we will contact you if a place becomes available.  It is highly likely that we will offer further team places over the next few weeks as there are always withdrawals.

There are still some team places remaining for Senior Teams (U14, U16 and U19).  Click HERE to register.

If you were successful in registering you will have received a payment confirmation email from PayPal.  You will not receive a confirmation from TEAM Fear today.  We will send out individual team confirmations as soon as we can later this week.

Waivers and Sponsorship
This year we are streamlining the waiver process by using an electronic Waiver system.  Please click HERE to complete the Waiver.  

Parents and competitors must read the Team FEAR Race Rules.  Click HERE to read them.

We also request that competitors raise sponsorship money for our nominated charity Youth Outreach.  The sponsorship form, along with any money raised, should be returned after the Race once all monies have been collected in.  Click HERE to access the form.

If you haven't already done so, please register your marshals by clicking HERE.

Pre-registration 2014

We are now open for pre-registration for this year's Team FEAR Challenge which will take place on Sunday 16th November.

Registration can be done at your leisure - the order in which teams register does not matter.   You can click HERE for the online form.

As part of your registration you will be sent a registration reference number along with the details of your team's registration.

In September (we will send you the exact date and time in advance) we will open our PayPal payment form and teams will need to pay and enter their team reference.  As soon as the maximum number of teams have registered we will close our PayPal payment form and people who missed payment will be able to register instead on a waiting list on the website.

Please note, you do not need to make any payments until September.  We will only be accepting PayPal payments this year.  No cash or cheques.  

Age cut-off changes

We have altered the cut-off date for the different age groups.  We have moved the cut-off date to the end of the year (31 December) to bring it more in line with schools in Hong Kong.

For example, if a competitor turns 10 any time during the year up to and including 31 December, they will qualify for the Under 11 age category.

For this year's race, we will accept competitors aged 8 or over on 31 December 2014 (and under 19).  As in previous years, we will not be accepting 7 year olds.
