Lost Sole 50 and Half Sole 25 are set as individual challenges and geared towards people who want to set a personal goal, raise funds for our chosen charity, RUN, take part in a smaller less competitive event, train for upcoming races or just to join in a great day out on Lantau.
The 50k course is almost all on the famous Lantau trail going over Sunset and Lantau peaks. The elevation gain is around 2300 meters. Refreshment stops are set up at 2 locations and a convenient 7/11 at Ngong Ping to resupply. Starts at 0815 from Mui Wo Lantau basecamp which is next door to HSBC bank..
The 25km course, or otherwise known as Half Sole, has the same start and finish point and follows the same route as its big brother event except you turn off at Pak Kung Au and head back to Mui Wo. This year it will start at 1100 from the lantau basecamp store next to HSBC which is opposite the ferry pier..
The 2018 edition was held on February 9th (Friday) with registration opening up at 10am on October 16th. Only 52 places will be available for each of the courses with a wait-list implemented if over subscribed. Those that have completed Lost Sole or took part in previous 2017 or 2016 events can contact us for early registration.
This event is open to all runners and hikers but the 50km version will need prior training as it must be completed in a certain amount of time.
