Season curtain raiser - CBRE Lantau 2 Peaks

HONG KONG, – Oct 2, 2022 - The much-anticipated mountain trail season curtain opener - CBRE Lantau 2 Peaks™ lived up to the hype on 2 October (Sunday) with a sold out event close to 500, with almost 200 on a waiting list, great cool weather for the start with windy gusts, a breeze high up on the 934m summit Lantau Peak with Japanese Masashi 雅 Shirotake城武(Masa) taking the overall Men’s title with one of Hong Kong’s top Female mountain runners Wong Mei-yan taking the overall Women’s title - who has had an outstanding last year with many top podium results.

“Hi, I’m from Japan. Thankyou Action Asia and all the staff for organizing this race as the downhill from Sunset Peak into Wong Lung Hang valley was little bit slippery and technical, but I really enjoyed this CBRE Lantau 2 Peaks race as due to restrictions, great Action Asia got permission and hoping for more races” said Shirotake taking the overall win in a stunning time of 2 hours 45 minutes 56 seconds.

“Great day at the CBRE Lantau 2 Peaks and so happy to join as I did well previously and my time was better this year so am happy to experience this again with everyone being so happy” said overall women winner Wong Mei-yan finishing in 3 hours 39 minutes 34 seconds and relishing the finish line seeing some of her friends.

Second in the overall Men’s 23km course was Chan Ka Keung (KC) finishing in 2 hours 52 minutes 57 seconds who battled Masa thru the race just down a little over a minute at the Pak Kung Au 15km mark (CP2) before Masa put the burners on pushing himself to run a lot of Sunset Peak uphill increasing the gap carrying 2 full flasks while KC refilled only 1 bottle for a faster check point transition.

“Very happy with my result today at the CBRE Lantau 2 Peaks as I really enjoyed the Lantau Peak downhill as very technical and rocky with some beautiful scenery” said KC who actually was in so much pain from cramping minutes after he finished that St Johns ambulance medics had to rush to him and spend a good 20minutes or so helping him before he recovered and could stand.

Third overall in the Men’s was Salomon Wettstein (Switzerland) in 3:02:45, with Jeremy Ritcey (Canada) taking 4th overall in 3:04:08 with Oliver Marks (UK) taking 5th overall in 3:09:49.

Second overall in the Womens was Zein Williams who is no stranger to the podium with numerous trail running race wins under her belt and was all smiles as she usual is at a trail running race, especially in her training back yard. “Great being at this CBRE Lantau 2 Peaks event as the great thing was the organization as the start line was easy and smooth, the checkpoints were easy and the views were incredible, it’s a great race, finishing was good and special thanks for the volunteers, sponsors and the organizer as without them there would be nothing” commented Williams relishing her 2nd overall this year in 3 hours 40 minutes 17 seconds just 38 seconds behind for a true battle, but speaking of a Women’s battle, how about the next 3 Women from third to fifth with Shirley Cornelia Hung (HKG) in 3:47:38, Angelika Hahn (Germany) in 3:47:38 and Chiu Man 昭文 Cheung 張 ( HKG) 3:48:01 with all 3 inside of 37 seconds.

“We extend our deepest congratulations to participants who took part in the CBRE Lantau 2 Peaks Race 2022. Completing the 15km or 23km course is a strong testament to their personal commitment and perseverance. A huge congratulations to all the winners for taking home the big titles. As a company that values the spirit of sportsmanship, CBRE takes pride in supporting a hiking race like CBRE Lantau 2 Peaks where people can continue to realize their potential to the fullest,” said Tom Gaffney, Regional Managing Director, CBRE Hong Kong.

“We are very glad to be able to partner with a passionate organization like CBRE on this race. The company leads by example with many of their employees taking an active role in contributing to the environment, by getting outside and participating in a race that requires commitment, dedication and perseverance. With Hong Kong’s quarantine restrictions being relaxed, the overall mood in the city has become more positive and based on the success and positive comments from the CBRE Lantau 2 Peaks really looking forward to welcoming overseas trail enthusiasts soon to showcase what this beautiful city has to offer," said Michael Maddess, Director of Action Asia Events.

The CBRE Lantau 2 Peaks ™, 23km course like the name says, reaches the 2nd and 3rd highest peak of Hong Kong in Lantau Island – Lantau Peak reaching 934m and Sunset Peak taking participants close to 800m on a very technical and demanding course, with the total elevation gain of the 23km course almost 1900m compared to the 15km course having a total elevation gain 854m. The steep mountain trails are the most strenuous part of the race, with the payoff that participants can enjoy the magnificent views around if they have a chance to look up.

The start and the finish line are both located at the Tung Chung Citygate which is sea level.

This years’ CBRE Lantau 2 Peaks did not have food on the course or at finish, due to health safety measures, however organizers were allowed water dispensers at checkpoints and the finish for proper rehydration. All participants must be triple vaccinated, perform PCR tests within 48 hours of the event, conduct RAT test race morning, use the leave home safe app to confirm blue color, wear masks at the start & finish areas and take part in wave starts.

The event could not happen without the generous support of the title sponsor CBRE and the supporting partners Action X Store, Royale International, Around DB, Life On Lantau, Fitz, St Johns Ambulance, C3Fit, SaveWo, Watsons Water, Citygate Outlets, ITRA, New Life Plastics and the beneficiary Ocean Recovery Alliance.
