Trail running

Hong Kong has become the hub for some of Asia’s best trail running races, taking place over the city’s mountainous and rocky terrain. The local competition scene is in full swing during the cooler months from October until March, drawing a competitive local and international crowd. Key events include the Oxfam Trailwalker, MSIG Lantau 50 and Vibram HK 100.
