The following is issued on behalf of the Major Sports Events Committee:
  The Major Sports Events Committee (MSEC) has awarded "M" Mark status to the 25th Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon, which will be held on February 12.
  The Chairman of the MSEC, Mr Wilfred Ng, said today (February 6) that like all other "M" Mark events, the 25th Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon will add colour and vibrancy to Hong Kong.
  "The "M" Mark events showcase Hong Kong's capability to host world-class events and enhance Hong Kong's position as a centre for major international sports activities. These events also allow the general public to enjoy and participate in high-level competitions and nurture a sustainable sporting culture in the community," Mr Ng said.
  The "M" Mark System was launched in 2004 to help local national sports associations organise more major international sports events and nurture them into sustainable undertakings. Sports events meeting the assessment criteria will be granted "M" Mark status by the MSEC. Funding support will also be provided to some events.
