TransLantau - Hong Kong 2014

Recommended Posts

I read frpm the mail Translantau sent yesterday that 14Mar pick up from 5-10pm is for 100km. 50km overseas pick up is on the 15Mar from 7-8.30am.

If can pick up earlier on Friday I don't mind.

I'm also doing 50km and landing 14th morning.

I reaching on the 14th pretty early, so i will go collect the bibs same day.

50km anyone with me ?

Raymond do you happen to be flying by Scoot ? I am, and also reaching on 14th morning.

Yes i saw 50km to collect on 15th, but also there's a 'only overseas', so will be dropping them an email to check if overseas runners 50km able to collect on the 14th. If not, I guess just collect on the 15th, the race starts at 9am not that early.

for those doing 50km (and just want to meet cut-off time), here are 2 points to take note:

1) Your first mission is to reach CP3 before the cut-off. Have a good lunch at CP2 and prepare for the ascend (the ascend will take forever but descend is very fast about 30mins).

2) Take note of the cut-off times at CP3-4 (3hrs) and CP4-5 (2hrs) even though the distance are both around 10km...so you have to push off CP4 early (lots of food there to enjoy) so that you can reach CP5 on time

have fun and good luck!

you are really "excited", huh?

I won't be racing .... hope to see you guys on Sat morning at MuiWo. I should also be there the night before for the 100km start (to kaypo too).

I don't know anyone of you ... if you know me and see me on either Friday night or Saturday morning, just shout out to me.

(for the 50 km runners, don't let me catch up, though! haha)

I have a noob question.

Can energy gel be in the hand carry or must be check in luggage?

I don't think I have much to bring so am thinking of avoiding checking in luggage.

What's your experience so far?

Eneegy gel should be less than 100ml...should be able to hand carry

I got another question, for the ferry tickets. What time does the ticket office open?

Can we buy one day before?

You can use octopus card for ferry. No need buy ticket.

You can buy energy gel in HK. Is much cheaper than SG.

There is a Lantau Base Camp at Mui Wo which sells energy gel.

In Mongkok, there is RC Outfitter, Chamonix Alpine, Overlander.

At Central, there is sportsworld, escapade Sports.

I feel a bit better :P at least not only me touching down on Friday 5am alone ! Haha....but i'm travelling by Scoot.

Anyone can share for their 50km, what will be your estimated finishing time ?

1st time doing this, totally clueless. My aim is to finish in one piece and of course before the cut-off time.

Sorry. I realise i will touch down on fri 5am instead. Zzzz

@maxwoon, hahaha...well thank goodness. I thought I was the only one too. Am asking my nephew to collect the race bib for me cos I might not reach in time to the start point. :P Anyway, mine is a slow 15km walk cos hubby not keen in running too fast (or even to run much, :P). It's a sight seeing trip and giving him a feel of trail running.

I have friends aiming at 8-9hrs. But again, I like to advise, do at ur own pace. Do not worry about others. Just be careful when you are running...ok?
