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)

The photographs are free of charge but we have had to pay for extra storage at the site where they are uploaded.  If you could make a contribution (Paypal details are below) when you download photos it would be much appreciated.  We will use these donations to reimburse the charges and so enable us to give more to the Charity.  You do not have to have a PayPal account to make a payment through PayPal.

What a great Race - you were fantastic competitors!  The weather was kind and everyone had a superb Race.  

Thank you also to all the volunteers who helped out to make it a fantastic and safe day.  Without you the Race would not be possible.

If you have been able to collect in sponsorship money, now is the time to send it to Team FEAR.

If you could make out a cheque to Far East Adventure Racers and send it to Team FEAR c/o Discovery Bay Marina Club, Discovery Bay or hand it into DBIS Main Office, it would be much appreciated.  Thank you so much for raising money for the charity.  We will collate all the monies and present Youth Outreach with a large donation in the new year.

Results coming out soon.....!
