The MacLehose Trail is the longest hiking trail in Hong Kong, spanning 100 km and divided into 10 sections. The third to eighth sections are considered the most challenging, with a total elevation gain of 3200 m, earning them the nickname“Double Au”among hikers. Due to their formidable nature, the Double Au sections have become a testing ground for various long-distance trail races. Participants who conquer this segment demonstrate their ability to take on races of 100 km.

The purpose of the“MacLehose Trail Warm-up Race”is to provide hikers preparing for longer trail races with an opportunity to warm up. In addition to individual categories, the race also offers four-person and two-person team divisions, allowing for on-course support personnel and facilitating practical training in teamwork and resupply assistance. Furthermore, We have specially scheduled the event to start at 2:00 pm, enabling participants to experience the challenges of competing at night.
