Hong Kong 100 Ultramarathon
The megacity of Hong Kong (7.4 million inhabitants) is a constant presence to the Hong Kong 100 Ultra Marathon, a 100-kilometer race that, despite its name, never touches urban ground. The route runs largely along the Sai Kung Peninsula overlooking the islands in the China Sea that are part of the UNESCO Global Geoparks Network.
Despite its small size, Hong Kong has spectacular natural corners that have made this race, born in 2011, one of the most important ultra distance races in Asia. Every January, the continent’s best runners can compete against athletes from all over the world and demonstrate the potential of trail running in the region.
