Why Run It?

What to Expect

One of the most epic races in Hong Kong is the HK100, or Hong Kong Ultra Trail 100K, which also has a 56K version. Running through the jungle and up to a peak overlooking the ocean, it’s hard to believe the financial heart of Asia is just a short taxi ride away. You can earn your bragging rights in the race and then go out for drinks in Central to celebrate, energy levels permitting.

"It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting."

-Paulo Coelho

Did you know that Hong Kong is one of the premier trail running destinations in the world? From October to March, there are races almost every weekend. But you’d better be ready for some hills before you sign up for one! I especially like The Green Race’s challenging series of trail races, including a few ultras, like the TGR Ultra (119K, 75K) in March, TGR Summits in November (50K), Hard as Nayls (50K) in December. Many of their events offer UTMB qualifying points, in case you need a reason to run beyond the stunning course routes.
