Victoria Harbour – the Harbour of Hong Kong.
We learned from Geography class that the Victoria Harbour was a result of risen sea level; valleys submerged under water and becomes a natural deep water shelter, surrounded by hills on all sides. Ringing around the harbour, the hills are nearly a kilometer a.s.l on the NT peninsula and Lantau Island; two steep peaks of 500m plus shoots up from West and East ends of the tiny HK island.
And it is under this backdrop we designed our dream race: to circle around the Victoria Harbour via the trails and the peaks.
In our 3rd edition, we continue to bring on some refreshing challenges:
:: a 100-miles course that runs all over the territory: starts with Lantau, over to NT, Kowloon and ends on the Island.
:: Climbs all the highest peaks on the 3 Landmasses: Lantau Peak (934m), Tai Mo Shan (952m) and Victoria Peak (552m) .
:: Crosses the harbour twice, once on both ends: Kap Shui Mun on the West and Lei Yue Mun on the East.
:: The first multi-stage race with campsites in Hong Kong. Load up your gears and complete the 3-day, self-supported race before taking on an overseas stage race.
