Hong Kong’s favourite race is going virtual and we welcome you onboard!
The Country of Origin trail run is a team of three event along a 30km route on Lantau Island, aimed at bringing teams from the same nationalities together for a great day out on the trails.
Teams must have three members from the same nationality (same passports) of any gender combination - no age categories, but all male, female and mixed teams are welcome.
Your team must start, run and finish together, and fancy dress in national costume and/or colours is highly encouraged! There will also be a prize for the best dressed team which has free entry into the 2022 race!
Entry fee is HK$150 per runner, $450 per team. 15% of the entry will be given to the Brain Tumour Charity (https://www.thebraintumourcharity.org/). As many of you know the Race Director and friend to many, Nic Tinworth passed away last year to brain cancer, and the COO will always support this charity in his memory.
