District is a movement created to inspire urban dwellers to rediscover their city and level up their fitness. There is no set route and no set distance. Start and finish at the District Base and navigate through the city with the District Race app in your hands.
With 3 different categories - Elite, Open and Explorer - choose the grid that's best suited for you, and explore your city, via a series of virtual Checkpoints and Challenges.
Play to your strengths, strategise, and choose how you explore. Run in teams or individually and rediscover your city.
INDIVIDUAL – Run your own race and unleash your full potential.
TEAM - Form a team of 4 and collect points while explore your city together. Points on the Live Leaderboard is the cumulative effort of all 4 team members.
ELITE - The toughest of all 3 categories, the Elite Grid is a 4-hour long mission with over 200 checkpoints and challenges. It is open to an exclusive group of 500 of the strongest runners looking to push themselves to the limit and explore all corners of the city. There is a prize purse of 40,000 HKD for the Elite winners.
OPEN - The Open category is the main District category. The Open Grid is a 2- hour mission with over 100 checkpoints and challenges. It is created for those wanting to explore new places around their city and compete in new challenges. Explorers can join individually or as a team of 4*.
