Elevation gain 599m & elevation loss 599m (Max elev 465m) – 4.5 hour cut-off

總爬升599米,總下降599米 (最高點 465米) – 限時 4.5小時

Start time: 8:00AM
起步時間:早上8:00

 

The start is inside the Discovery Bay plaza and leads out to the main sandy beach where you will run to the end of the beach, by the children’s swings/cargo net area. After running around the swings you will exit onto a cement road path and turn immediate LEFT  and run down side lane until the main Discovery Valley Road junction. You will have to cross the road so please be careful and look both ways before crossing. Run up sidewalk around 1km uphill to first right turn road that leads to old Sprint cp and continue up this road to entrance of Lo Fu Tau trail.  This will take the fastest 20 minutes and 40 minutes for the average. When you leave the Discovery Bay Valley Road turning right on small road, stay on the road 200m before going left on the first major trail junction and follow this trail to the very top of Lo Fu Tau where a timing checkpoint will be. Continue thru the Mtn top CP and take the first left junction down a steep mountain trail. Be very careful on this downhill as there are some rocks at the beginning of this trail and if you are going to fast (race leaders!!!) it is very easy to fall and injure yourself. Once at the bottom of the trail you will see the reservoir on your right side and water checkpoint will be there. (remember Bonaqua carboys so bring your own hydration system for refill).  This is around 5.5 km into the course so far. You will then continue along the main road towards the golf course entrance staying left hitting the first left trail entrance before the golf course. (Note some construction on golf course so slight detour off original trail but same direction. This trail will contour around 1.5 km around the golf course clockwise before reaching a trail junction where you will do a sharp left downhill turn. This downhill trail will be around 500 m (watch out for loose rock as easy to twist your ankle), until you reach the cement path by the Monastery. Turn left on the cement path and run down a very steep cement path/road for around 300 m before another sharp left turn on a cement path. This path will take you 300-400 m before some houses so please respect the people that live there as they could be walking on this narrow footpath. When you hit the beach by the first set of houses you will go straight to the beach and run 400 m along the coastline (easy flat beach with some rocks) then cut back onto the footpath next to you and take the cement footpath all the way back to Discovery Bay passing thru Nim Shue Wan. You will cross the main road and run directly across the street by the La Costa apartments and then through waterfront to the main south plaza where the marshal will direct you in to the plaza Watch out for children!!!!  Finish line in front of McSorelys Irish bar in square. AGAIN WATCH OUT FOR PEOPLE WHEN RUNNING INTO SQUARE….

LUGGAGE CHECK - yes at start and pick up same location after showing your race number. No valuables please.

行李寄存 – 起點位置設有行李寄存,須出示號碼布取回行李,請勿擭帶貴重物品。

 

PASSING ON THE COURSE – THE CORRECT WAY 賽道上超前的正確方法

Please be considerate and turn your music down so you can hear others approaching. See rules & regulations tab on this page. If you must pass someone please yell, “passing on your left” or “passing on your right”. If someone is passing you please be considerate and let them overtake you. No pushing and shoving please.

請把音樂的音量調低,以便能聽到其他參加者經過,請參閱規則與條款頁,如要超前前方之跑手,請早揚聲。"在你右方前進"或"你的右方",均示意閣下正在接近及有意超前。如被其他參加者超前,請顧及對方,讓他超前,請勿推撞。

How much water / sport drink to start with??? RECOMMEND SPORT DRINK AS SODIUM INSIDE TO REDUCE CRAMPING.

You must bring your own drinks to start with so recommend:

1 - 1.5 liters of water or sport drink– If you plan on walking the course bring at least 2-3 gels and maybe 1 energy bar.

起步時須要多少水/運動飲品??? 建議帶備運動飲品以減少抽筋機會

起跑必須自飲料。

1至1.5公升水或運動飲品,如你計劃步行,請帶備2-3包能量膏及1條能量能量棒。



Hydration on Friday & Saturday BEFORE RACE DAY

Recommend stay well hydrated 2 days leading up to race - drink lots of water the day before the race. Don’t just drink water but get minerals / electrolytes in your body as well.

賽前星期五及六水份補充

建議賽前兩天補充足夠水份,賽前一天,補充大量水份,除以外,更應補充電解質。


Food on Friday & Saturday BEFORE RACE DAY

Recommend starting carbo-loading at least 48 hours before the race and not just waiting until the night before. AVOID MEAT THE NIGHT BEFORE as takes more than 24 hours to fully digest and will make you feel sluggish. Try to have a good breakfast (banana oatmeal, rice, etc) at least 2-3 hours before the start of the race in order for good digestion.

賽前星期五及六食物補充

建議賽前最少48小時開始儲存炭水化合物,不要比賽前晚上才開始。比賽前晚上避免吃肉類,因須要24小時才完全消化,比賽前2至3小時前吃豐富早餐(香蕉、麥片、米飯等),以達至良好消化。


Garbage on the course

ANYBODY FOUND THROWING EMPTY GEL WRAPPERS, GARBAGE OR EMPTY BOTTLES ON THE COURSE WILL BE DISQUALIFIED AND FINED. Please help us report anyone you see blatantly throwing garbage.
