TransLantau 2015 - Hong Kong

Recommended Posts

I'm heading back for round two (50k). Had my butt handed to me the last time. Hope to do better this time round.

it's been a year soon, so fast. I'm still traumatised by the endless stairs for the 50km. But since I completed it, won't be going back again.

50km also.

Still overweight too much, and got very bad Plantar Fasciitis while increasing mileage too fast. Going to be a tough 6 months ahead.

Hmmm.. I'm interested in the 25k..but not sure if I'm up to it.

Completed a number of HMs and the recent TNF 25k was my first trail race. But this seems to be a lot more challenging.. ??

As i was trying to poison Max, along came tough lil cookie here trying to counter poison me :startle: !!! Unfortunately, i don't think i'll be mentally, physically and financially ready to tackle the Lantau100 next year. I'll wait for Hitman and Max's post race reviews before taking the leap of faith...maybe in 2016. Thus, your post race interview with them will play an important role in my future participation hehe ;)

I see lots of interests in the TransLantau event. It is one of the more challenging 100km races in HK. For any of the trail runs in HK, just be prepared for lots of steps. Train for it and you will get through the distance with a bit more ease. The numerous climbs (up & down) will be a big strain on your knees and ankles. Those that have been to any of th trails in HK will know what to expect. For first-timers, just be prepared :)

For those interested to know what to expect, have a look to give you an idea what's in store.....

Exactly...the stairs are brutal.

I am still having nightmare.

Whoever came up with the idea of building the stairs are genius :P

Couldn't agree more about the stairs. After some point, I'm not sure if I rather be going the uphill or downhill. Equally daunting on the quads.

So this time round, I'm bringing hiking poles to help me out.

I'm really tempted, but cant decided if I should go for 15km or 25km as first timer. How do people train for this race? Do lots of stairs and trail?

Nice video metallilan, an inspiration!

    • As long as there is still no vaccine and cure. As long as new clusters can emerge and the infection won't stop. As long as there are waves expected after another one. As long as WHO did not declare we are Covid-19 free...  dear @Lady Ice, perhaps we put the all the research of the past, and the fear of the current pandemic aside, otherwise, off-topic discussions, because timeline could be months or even years away when healing takes place... uncle ends this here - last post, shared on thoughts on how Covid-19 actually impact races, yes, future races will definitely not be the same as what they use to be because of Covid-19..."sanatized" with social distancing with social responsibility. best wishes to all...here at this forum thread..  
    • BTW here is about sneezing... though sneezing is not part of covid19, people who might have it and inadvertently sneeze can spread it  
    • Yes - and think we cab begin to redefine how we want the New World order to be Here is a WHO guideline about Personal Protection etc for infectious diseases: https://apps.who.int/iris/bitstream/handle/10665/331498/WHO-2019-nCoV-IPCPPE_use-2020.2-eng.pdf
    • It’s natural to compare the two outbreaks, keeping in mind just how severe the Spanish flu outbreak was.  While Covid-19 could get much worse, if we fail to adequately adopt measures like social distancing, aggressive testing , and quarantining. It is all about social responsibility. Keep us updated on what and how UK handles Covid-19, which is a little different from SG. The role of govts are to care for their people, of course, mindful of how Covid-19 has impact the economy. Here in SG is GDP. When going running, have been taking a 10m distance from people. We don't have issues here, except now we must maintain group of 10 and below, and social distancing at 1m till mid-April Perhaps, we focus on future races with social distancing, how would that impact races - announcement to register (with transparency with if there a Refund in the event of postponement and cancellation for any reason), rpc venue, reporting to pen, is it going to be more wave starts, race routes must cater for social distancing, finishing at ending, "Move on" maintaing social distancing, exit from race site, keep 10 or 50 or 250 always...  Definitely, uncle will skip any race this year for reasons that Covid-19 is not free, and understanding pandemic operates in waves, up and down, no idea how many more after the 1st wave - 3 weeks from now. Will there be 2nd or 3rd wave..only the medical experts from WHO can advise us, with the govt implementing advisory and enforcement of rules and laws for non-compliance. Keep strong and "active" running program...whether 7m or 12m or 20m in home or outdoor. The world will not be the same after this pandemic. 😷
