The Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation (KCRC) will run a special early train service, the KCRC Marathon Express, on 4 March (Sunday) between 4:00 am to 5:40 am to bring athletes of the Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon 2007 to the start point at Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui.
To facilitate runners to arrive at the start point on time, KCRC will advance the service hour of the southbound trains of East Rail and Ma On Shan Rail by about 1.5 hour earlier on the morning of 4 March. The first East Rail southbound train will depart Lo Wu Station at 4:00 am and the first Ma On Shan Rail southbound train will depart Wu Kai Sha Station at 4:11 am. The East Rail and Ma On Shan Rail stations will open about 10 minutes before the departure of the first train.
During the KCRC Marathon Express service period, the trains will run at a frequency of 12 to 16 minutes. East Rail and Ma On Shan Rail will resume their normal train schedule at 5:40 am.
