QUALIFYING: 

There are no “qualifying standards” for this event, however all runners should be aware this is NOT a beginner’s event. All participants are expected to make their own informed decision as to whether or not they are up for the challenge - based on previous experience, running knowledge, mindset and preparation. Minimum age for participation is 18 (on race day).   

SUPPORT:

Runners will need to be semi self-sufficient, capable of running 10-18km between checkpoints (where water will be provided). Runners will need to carry their own gels/snacks/energy bars/etc; but will have access to a drop bag at CP2 ("halfway point" each day). This means you only need to carry enough fuel (gels, bars, etc) to run 25-30kms. At lunch, you can refuel and restock for the afternoon. We recommend runners prepare a lunchbox (and any other provisions) for CP2 each day. Food & drinks will be available at the finish line each day. For further info, see our FAQs section.   

COURSE MARKING:

The course will be marked, mainly at junctions or through unclear sections, however unlike shorter races runners should not expect to see a marker/ribbon every 100m. With this in mind, runners are required to download the GPX files (or carry a map). 

REGISTRATION: 

Registration opens Saturday 2nd November (10am).  

Registration closes when the event reaches 100 runners (30 for 180km).

CUT OFFS:

The cut-off times each day are quite relaxed (10-12 hours). Our aim is to support you 100% in completing this magnificent event.    

TRAIL CARE REQUIREMENT:

All participants are required to complete two hours of "trail care" prior to the event. No fixed rules for this, except each runner should spend a minimum of two hours cleaning up a trail, park, beach or coastal area - either in HK or your home country. You will NOT be asked to provide proof; this will be done on the honour system.
