COMPETITOR BRIEFING VIDEO: https://bit.ly/tf2023-competitior-briefing

Team FEAR is proud to announce the restart of the Adventure Challenge Race. Due to COVID, all racing had been suspended for the last 3 years since 2019. During this forced hiatus the organising committee has been rebuilding our capabilities given that many of us have moved on or left HK.

Therefore in an attempt to simplify things, our race this year will be an amended version. Notable changes include:

  • Race Date and Time: 7:00am, December 3rd, 2023 @ DB North Promenade.
  • Age groups: U9, U10, U11, U12, U13 and U16 categories (we hope to expand the age groups once more in 2024 and beyond).
  • Age Limit: We require racers to be 8 years old, however, we will accept 7 year old racers as long as they are sufficiently fit and prepared.
  • Course: No bike course or bike check.
  • Teams: All teams will be teams of 2.
  • Mandatory Marshal: Each team must supply 1 person to assist us as a marshal for the race day. This could be a parent, helper, older friend or sibling (aged 15+). This requires no previous experience just a commitment to help us ensure the safety of all our racers. Full instructions will be shared in due course.
  • Registration and Ticketing: The event will cost $900 per team of 2. Registration is done through Ticketflap: https://www.ticketflap.com/team-fear.

Other factors remain the same such as our committee being a wholly voluntary organisation and we donate all surpluses from the race to our partner charity Youth Outreach www.yo.org.hk.

Race Safety

This race is designed as a challenging sporting event. As such, racers must adhere to all the instructions issued to them and by race marshals on the course.
