Got the ballot. Mine is 635am start but i dunno want to do this race or not.

This is a hilly Course so loads of hilly runs is required.

 

From the FAQs: Is the Marathon course very hilly?
The elevation of the Marathon course ranges from 30 meters below sea level to 90 meters above sea level. The lowest point of the entire route will be located inside Western Harbour Tunnel and the highest point will be the Tsing Ma Bridge section.

It is not flat for sure but definitely won't be very hilly either. Form what I recall, the expressways are more of a gradual incline, don't think your "loads of hilly runs" is particularly correct.

And assuming you are aiming for PBs, why would you want to ballot in the first place?

I went there once. So it's possible to pb down there if you know how to pace yourself.

Oh, my apologies..

On the waiting list, hoping I will not get it since I got Tokyo Marathon slot. 

It is not a flat course, quite a lot  major climb though gradual at those bridges and at Central area. But if you are used only to run in Singapore or hot climate, the cold weather in HK surely helps a lot to get PB.
