Saturday’s boiling temperatures were not a deterrent for intrepid trail runners as they headed to Lantau for The Green Race Tiger Head 16km. The route started and finished in Mui Wo, looping around Discovery Bay via stunning mountaintop trails.
The race began at 2:30pm, so the heat was upon participants immediately. There was little shade up high, so runners had to dig deep to keep moving.
They then faced a technical and steep descent down Tiger Head. The first and only check point was a welcome respite before the final push.
The course then followed a series of rugged trails surrounded by jungle and rocks. Finally, runners made their way though the finishing arches for a well-earned beer.
