CSD holds 10km Distance Run

     The Correctional Services Department (CSD) held the 10km Distance Run at the Plover Cove Reservoir's main dam in Tai Po today (January 11). More than 500 people took part in the event, including serving and retired correctional officers and representatives from 13 government departments and organisations.

     To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the CSD, a 100km team challenge was added to compete for prizes. As well, kites painted by correctional officers, new recruits and rehabilitation pioneer leaders were flown at the main dam to celebrate the anniversary.

     The 10km Distance Run was one of the events held at the first Sports Meet of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao Correctional Officers in 2001. Since then it has become the department's annual activity to promote a healthy and balanced lifestyle for staff members by encouraging them to take part in sports activities. More than 500 athletes take part in the annual event, and the run is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.
