Mr. Kwok and Mr. Lam are teaming up for their first Action Asia Kayak n Run race, “We are really excited for the coming race at Tai Tam Bay! We would keep training for this race, like hitting the gym and jogging on the street after work. At the race, we expect to try our best to get a good result.”

The trail running enthusiast, Tim Vandecasteele from Belgium would join the race for his first time. “It is my first Action Asia Kayak n Run race and I’m really looking forward to this race.” Vandecasteele said. “Trail running in Hong Kong is a perfect way to get out from the busy city. I also get to see some beautiful views too! Action Asia Kayak n Run race helped me to explore the nature and I want to have as much fun as possible. A great day out that’s mostly what we’re looking forward to!”.
