Event Details

IN DECEMBER 2015, 36 TEAMS TOOK ON A 32 KILOMETRE TREK ACROSS HONG KONG ISLAND ENDING WITH DRINKS ON THE BEACH.


The event, organised by our amazing Hong Kong Ambassadors, raised a staggering 

HK$ 689,000 for Sailors’ Society!

 

 THE CHALLENGE

This year we are offering two routes on Lantau Island encompassing Lantau and Sunset Peaks.

LANTAU PEAK


This trail is one of the most challenging
climbs with steep inclines as it goes over
Lantau Peak, some 934 metres high.


The views are out of this world- 360 degree
views of the surrounding islands, Lantau
Island itself and Hong Kong in the distance.
You can also see Po Lin Monastery, the
Widsom Path and the iconic Big Buddha
sitting gracefully on top of his mountain,
before continuing the challenging climb to
the summit.

SUNSET PEAK


Sunset Peak is the third highest peak in
Hong Kong at 869 metres above sea level.
In places it can be steep and the flatter parts
of the climb can induce the desire to run!
The sights are stunning and you will find
yourself overlooking Pui O, the coastline
and the surrounding islands. At the summit
there are further beautiful views, including
sights of the northern side of the island and
completing the challenge in the utopia of
Discovery Bay.
