Race Categories and distances

  • Men’s, Women’s and Mixed premier 500m races;
  • Men’s, Women’s and Mixed premier 1,000m races; and
  • Youth Mixed Crews (aged 12-17) 500m races. Please note, U18 crews do not race in the 1,000m event.

Distance and Number of Races:

  • The 500-Metre Race

The 500-metre race has two heats in all categories. Top teams will progress to finals (Cup for U18 Teams, Cup and Plate for Open Men’s, Women’s Teams; Cup, Plate and Bowl for Mixed Premier Teams). Teams that do not progress to the finals will not have another 500-m race on the day. We recommend all Adult Teams enter the 1,000-Metre race if they wish to have at least three races throughout the day.

  • The 1,000-Metre Race

The 1,000m race is an optional event but it is one of the most popular features of our event. For teams who may not make it to the final race, it also offers a third race of the day so that every club has as many opportunities to compete on the water as possible.
Other details

  • All race equipment, including paddles, will be provided. However, paddlers are welcome to use their own paddles so long as they comply with IDBF specifications. 
  • The Lamma 500 is a Green Event. We urge all teams to bring their own refillable water bottles. Our water-station is free of charge. We will also have recycling bins and a paperless (online) programme. We urge all our vendors, competitors, and guests to work to keep our environment clean.
  • The Lamma 500 supports the environmental charity Plastic Free Seas (www.plasticfreeseas.org) as well as the wonderful not-for-profit Women in Sports Empowered Hong Kong (睿動香港) (www.wisewomenhk.org/), which seeks to educate, empower and connect women and girls to realize their aspirations through sport.

We look forward to seeing you again soon!
