Our Team


The Twenty Four Hour Race is mainly planned, organized and delivered by student directors who are volunteering for the cause.

Behind the scenes we have a small team of full time staff who dedicate their careers to expand the races to new cities and develop the skills of new volunteers year after year. The full time staff is employed at Running To Stop The Traffik, which is a registered charity in Hong Kong with the mission to end slavery through running events.

Past Teams


The movement wouldn't be as great as we are now without the amazing contributions of a small team who started Running To Stop The Traffik as a charity organization from scratch. They have retired from their full time positions and following careers in various fields where they use their entrepreneurial skills that they acquired in the Twenty Four Hour Race.
