Team Fear

Posted by Peter MUIR

The Team FEAR Junior Challenge in Discovery Bay, is a race is designed for youngsters from 8 to 18. Held on Sunday Nov 24th, this is the 12th time the vent has been held.  It captures the spirit of adventure racing with elements across diverse challenges such as Trail running, Mountain Biking, Kayaking and Rock Scrambling. The race raises money for Youth Outreach, a local children’s charity.

Contestants come from all over Hong Kong and the popularity of the event is such that each year it heavily over subscribed. Last year we had over 550 contestants; it is the biggest race of its kind in Asia.  More information is available on the website

The safety and success of the race relies on all the volunteer and helpers, so here is your chance to get involved!

The main duties on the day of the race are marshaling and helping to clear up the course afterwards.  Help is also needed the Saturday before the race (Nov 23rd) to clear bushes and undergrowth on the course,  pumping up, checking and repairing inflatable kayaks, constructing a beach assault course, various course marking, and helping register and load bikes on trucks.  As the race takes place in the hills around D.B. there may be a bit of hiking and hard work involved (although nothing too onerous).

If you are interest in getting involved, contact Race Organising Committee member Ben Loran on 6687 1861.
