Venue: Central Ferry Pier No. 9 (next to Star Ferry)
Course Description - Individual Categories:
You start at Pier 9 (next to Star Ferry), run past the GPO, into the pedestrian tunnel towards Chater Road, pass the Legco, cut through Chater Garden, and up the pedestrian flyover to Cheung Kong Centre, Citibank Plaza and Murray Building, pass the Hong Kong Squash Centre and enter the Hong Kong Park. That's 2K!
Exit at the eastern end of Hong Kong Park, turn east and run on Kennedy Road until having reached the Petrol Station, i.e. the first check point (CP1). Cross the road there (with care! no police traffic control) to go up Bowen Path, and turn west onto Bowen Road to see the first water station, and then run a nice, flat section (about 1K) to arrive at the Magazine Gap Road. That’s 5K.
Continue downhill on Magazine Gap Road to turn right at Garden Road, further downhill passing the YWCA, and use the pedestrian flyover to cross over Garden Road to enter the Zoological & Botanical Gardens. You zoom by the birds and apes and emerge on the west end of the Zoo for a steep climb to Conduit Road where you cross at the traffic light to run on Hornsey Road to reach the second water station at the Glenealy School. i.e. the second check point (CP2)That’s more than 7K!
Proceed after a drink, climb a few stairs and immediately turn left, run on the bridge and get onto May Road to run for 500m until crossing over the Peak Tram rail, and you are at the entry to the Chatham Path. Climb up the shady, scenic but winding Chatham Path (about 1 km) and you will reach Barker Road. By that time, you have completed almost 9K and arrived at the last water station.
On the slightly inclined 1K along Barker Road, you have a bird's eye view of the entire Victoria Harbour underneath your running feet. At the end of Barker Rd, turn to the Plantation Rd and you’re at the last climb onto Findley Road, onward to the Finish at Peak Galleria---having challenged and conquered the Peak!
Course Description - Family Category:

For family team, kid will join the parent at the check point of Hornsey Road, i.e.CP2. When the parent arrives on Hornsey Road, he/she picks up his/her kid and runs together with the kid. The kid cannot start running before the parent arrives. The parent and the kid must run together to finish the rest of the course, i.e. from Hornsey Road to Peak Galleria.
