The Vibram® Hong Kong 100 is an ultra endurance race that takes place in Hong Kong. It is quite similar to Oxfam Trailwalker, but with a better planned hiking route. The 100km course starts in Pak Tam Chung on the Sai Kung Peninsula and covers some of the most beautiful scenery in Hong Kong, including remote and unspoilt beaches, ancient forests, nature trails, reservoirs and steep hills. The course is based around Hong Kong’s famous Maclehose Trail, but with some diversions to ensure that runners spend more time in its most scenic sections, as well as finishing with the descent from Hong Kong’s highest peak (Tai Mo Shan). The course involves a cumulative elevation gain of over 4500 meters and the cut-off time is 32 hours. This is a unique, challenging and beautiful run for the trail running enthusiast and a chance to take part in an unforgettable event. Join us and make some memories!

Tips for Vibramer
1. The course starts in the Sai Kung Peninsula which is on the north eastern part of Hong Kong (and to be more precise, north eastern part of the New Territories). This part of Hong Kong is the “countryside” and doesn’t really have hotels close by. However, the Pak Tam Chung Holiday Village and the Lady MacLehose Holiday Village which are pretty basic, very cheap and a bit like a scout camp.
2. The course will be marked with directional arrows, crosses and reflective flagging tapes. At junctions there will be an arrow indicating the direction of the route as well as confirmation flagging tape along the correct route. There will also be a cross on the tracks that you should not take. You should not need to navigate your way along the course with a map and compass.
