Overview

Welcome to our 5th annual TGR Pottinger at Pottinger Gap, Shek O (The race is 2020 was cancelled due to COVID-19). We are so happy to launch the race again after 3 years of COVID-19 pandemic. Like the versions before, this will be full of heart, laughter and sweat, possibly a few tears and ice-cold beverages. Don’t let the elevation profile trick you. This is a challenging race, the highlight being a rope section up to Pottinger Peak. Race solo or as a team of up to five, including our most popular family race category. See you at the start line in April!

30K

Pottinger Peak is the eastmost mountain of Hong Kong Island with open views. There is a militarily observation point on the peak to work with Devil’s Peak Battery and Sai Wan Battery defending the east waters of Victoria Harbour during World War II. Furthermore, Dragon’s Back is widely famous by local people and foreign visitors as the most beautiful trail in Hong Kong.

When you start in Pottinger Gap, you run along the biking trail and climb Dragon’s Back. The spectacular view of the east waters and mountains of the island is expected. You will run back to Pottinger Gap, climb Pottinger Peak, and then go down to the village of Tai Long Wan before climbing up the Pottinger Gap as the finish.

As it is the third race of the TGR Speed Series, the participants must run the 15K route twice to complete the 30km tournament.
