Vibram HK100 Ultra Trial 2015

Recommended Posts

Introduction

The Vibram® Hong Kong 100 is an ultra endurance race that takes place in Hong Kong. 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 30 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!

1st 50km relatively flat. There are some not expose to Ultra Trail find it isn't that 'flat' & remarked pole should be used in the first half.

A total of 4500+ elevation. Being an Ultra Trail. One can't possibly expect the 1st 50km to be similar to a road ultra. A bit of elevation in first half is inevitable. It can't possibly be 4500+ all in the 2nd half.

Generally a 10 hours within 1st half. And a 13 hours in the 2nd will safely get you a Bronze Trophy.

As I had swollen ankle which restrict my right foot. Even walking is not possible. My 2nd half is literally walking, only till the last 4 - 5km of tarmac downslope.

Completed as a happy boy.

Join again ? Maybe No. I hate stairs ^^

Hey guys it's really not difficult. I'm just into my 16 months of running.

I believe most guys here have lotsa more experience. Done more races than I drink alcohol.

30 hours cut off is far too generous. It was 32 hours previously.
