Outward Bound Adventure Race 2013

To help young people explore and develop their potential, confront difficult situations and build up their confidence, The Link provided venue support at Stanley Plaza as the finishing point to the Outward Bound Adventure Race 2013 on 10 March 2013.  The aim of the race is to provide an opportunity for participants to challenge themselves physically and mentally, as well as develop their teamwork, leadership and problem-solving skills.

Developing skills and confidence through physical and mental challenges

With more than 100 participating teams, this year’s Outward Bound Adventure Race set a new participation record. The race started at Moreton Terrace in Causeway Bay and finished at Stanley Plaza. Covering a total distance of 19 kilometers, the race included sports like kayaking, orienteering, swimming and trail running as well as “surprise” challenges, all of which combined to challenge participants to negotiate obstacles using strategy, leadership and teamwork.

Outward Bound Hong Kong, the organiser of the Outward Bound Adventure Race 2013, is a registered charity founded in 1970. Its mission is to provide high-quality multi-disciplinary races for sports enthusiasts, with the underlying aim of developing future leaders in Hong Kong.

Confronting challenges and contributing to the Hong Kong community
Miss Hilda Wong, Head of Marketing of The Link, said, “With wide portfolio of outdoor venues in The Link, it is a good match to support openair activities which can help self-development and, at the same time, realize our mission in delivering sustainable growth. Today’s Outward Bound Adventure Race 2013 at Stanley plaza is one of the good examples.  The Link will keep utilize its venues or facilities to support similar outdoor activities in future.”
