Hong Kong Tourism Board Collaborates with TLC to Introduce Hong Kong’s Outdoor Trails to Singaporeans

Train Live Compete (TLC) is proud to collaborate with Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) to promote the Hong Kong Outdoor trails to running enthusiasts in Singapore.

Running is a popular sport in Singapore, evident with the full calendar of running events in Singapore. As recreational runners challenge themselves further, they take to racing abroad to gain experience to enhance their skills and forge new friendship with like-minded runners.

Hong Kong, a short 4 hours flight away from Singapore, known for its many mountains and trails that are suitable for all levels of sports enthusiasts, is a perfect place for runners to start their venture into overseas competitions and trail running.

Ms. Liew Wei Yong: Shares Her Experience and Training Mantra

Founder of TLC, Ms Liew Wei Yong, a personal trainer and running coach of over 15 years, is no stranger to the outdoor trails in Hong Kong. A constant top 16 runner in local marathons, Wei Yong competed in several trail races in Hong Kong such as the Vibram Hong Kong, 100 Ultra Trail, TransLantau 50 and Wilson Trail 78km.

“I have been watching closely as Singapore’s running society has grown strong, vibrant and ultra-popular. I wanted to share my trail running experience and training mantra with Singapore runners. My goal is to help them do well and enjoy overseas races.”

says Wei Yong.

As part of the promotion efforts to promote the Hong Kong Great Outdoors, HKTB and TLC have joined hands to invite Ultra Trail Champion, Mr Stone Tsang, to Singapore to share some personal tips and training techniques with running enthusiasts.
