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)

We are aware that a number of families are still organising their teams and in order to give everyone more time, we are delaying payment registration until Saturday 20th September.

We will open Payment Registration through PayPal on Saturday September 20th at 10:00am.  We will open a PayPal form link on the front page of our website at that time.

You will need your registration reference and the names of the competitors.  

Registration is by team not by individual member so you only need to pay once.  The fee for a team of two is $700 and a team of three is $1050.  Please note:  it is not possible to pay by cheque or cash.

Pre-registration 2014

We are now open for pre-registration for this year's Team FEAR Challenge which will take place on Sunday 16th November.

Registration can be done at your leisure - the order in which teams register does not matter.   You can click HERE for the online form.

As part of your registration you will be sent a registration reference number along with the details of your team's registration.

In September (we will send you the exact date and time in advance) we will open our PayPal payment form and teams will need to pay and enter their team reference.  As soon as the maximum number of teams have registered we will close our PayPal payment form and people who missed payment will be able to register instead on a waiting list on the website.

Please note, you do not need to make any payments until September.  We will only be accepting PayPal payments this year.  No cash or cheques.  

Age cut-off changes

We have altered the cut-off date for the different age groups.  We have moved the cut-off date to the end of the year (31 December) to bring it more in line with schools in Hong Kong.

For example, if a competitor turns 10 any time during the year up to and including 31 December, they will qualify for the Under 11 age category.

For this year's race, we will accept competitors aged 8 or over on 31 December 2014 (and under 19).  As in previous years, we will not be accepting 7 year olds.

The Team FEAR 2013 photos have been taken by excellent photographers many of whom are parents in the Race:

  • Vince Ypersiel
  • Kingsley Birkett
  • James Branch
  • Greg Brown
  • Paul Christmas
  • David Roe
  • Cedric Visshers
  • Henry Wong

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.
