This 30K trail course on Lantau Island is a unique event that pits teams of 3 against each other for international bragging rights. Whether you race it or aim to out-dress the competition, it has one of the most fun race atmospheres in Hong Kong. Race Director Nic Tinworth.
What started as the Lantau 50 in 2012 now has 100K, 50K and 25K options and a distinctive 11:30pm night start. The course race is 80-90% trail, covers two country parks and finishes with a great seafront expo. The Race Director is Clement Dumont.
TransLantau 50 在2012年面世 ，現在有100K, 50K及 25K比賽路段，晚上11時半起跑。賽事路段覆蓋80-90%的越野路線，跨越兩個郊野公園。而完賽博覽於海邊舉行，風景優美，非常特别。
4. Hong Kong 100

5. Oxfam Trailwalker
Oxfam Trailwalker is one of the largest fundraising sporting events in Hong Kong, having raised over HK$538 million since 1986. In 2016, some 5,500 participants entered this unique supported 100km team event over the Maclehose Trail to help fight poverty.
6. The North Face 100
Features a wonderfully challenging route through the New Territories, excellent markings and checkpoints, and even a "Keith Noyes" shiggy special to finish. Potentially the best organised race in the TNF Asia Pacific Series with both the 100K and 50K options incredibly popular.
横跨新界地區所有極具挑戰性的路線，賽事路標和宣傳都非常出色。賽程尾段亦加入Keith Noyes 經典溪澗路段。整個TNF 系列，毫無疑問香港站是最受歡迎的，100k及50k所有名額,可以15分鐘滿額。
