Behind the scenes of the Hong Kong Marathon
On February 17th 2019 one of the largest marathons in the world took place. With over 74,000 participants the city of Hong Kong was turned into a running venue for a day. And what a day it was, with 2 course records, an EventApp to follow all athletes in real time and MYLAPS EasyMats for a super-fast timeline setup.

EasyMat used at one of world's largest marathons
The Hong Kong Marathon was one of the first running events using the new EasyMat. This new mat ensures super-fast setup times. The cabling is integrated in the mat itself, so there’s hardly any manual handling needed.
Light, quick and easy
The setup for the timing went faster than expected. The EasyMat is very convenient, it’s very light and quick to plugin and have it working. This saved us a lot of time compared to the other mats. Very good!
