The Fast 28 will begin on Friday, 15th February 2019 at 7 pm. This course is super fast and flat and will reward you with great evening running and a quick time with only around 400 metres of elevation gain. This event will have a 4.5 hours cut-off, with one full Aid Station and two Water Stops.
The Fast 50 will begin on Sunday, 17th February 2019 at 8 am. This course replicates the speed of the Fast 28 and adds a more difficult challenge, taking you over to Route Twisk via Ho Pui Reservoir and the mountain biking trails between Tai Mo Shan and Tai Lam. This is still a very speedy course, covering 50km and about 1300m of elevation gain. The views will not disappoint! This event will have 11 hours cut-off with 3 full Aid Stations and 2 Water Stops.
The Fast 100 will begin on Saturday, 16th February 2019 at 8 am. This course covers all the same ground as the Fast 50, but adds some amazing single track trail from Route Twisk to Shing Mun and then some beautiful fast running trails around Eagle's nest and then around the entire Shing Mun Reservoir. This is the fastest 100km race in Hong Kong, covering 100 km with about 2800m of elevation gain. Don't be fooled into thinking this will be easy though! There are hardly any stairs in this race and it's difficult to keep the legs moving fast. Think the Tarawera 100, Ultra Trail Australia or Western states. There is A LOT more running than hiking. This event will have a 24 hours cut-off with 9 full Aid Stations and 4 Water Stops.
Cool new events with 1% stairs, nice flowing trails, expected fast times, and lots of elite runners, including the biggest names from the States: Jim Walmsley and Rob Krar.
