Become a MoonTrekker

There’s nothing like the thrill of racing – to be running free, with the wind in your hair, people cheering you on and the adrenaline rush that comes at the finish line. Can you hear the “Chariots of Fire” jingle ringing in your head?

 



Challenge yourself to the MoonTrekker 2009 – the city’s first ever night race along the scenic country trails of Lantau Island. Whether you’re pushing for the 40km or the 25km, the objective is to trek from Mui Wo to Lantau Peak (Hong Kong’s second highest peak at 934m above sea level) in six to eight hours, and catch the sunrise at the finish line. Training for this race is not only good for your health, but at the end of the day, it’s also for a good cause. The sponsorship money that you’ll raise (minimum HK$500 each) will go to “Room To Read”, a non-profit organization that’s dedicated to promoting global education. Just think: Every step that you take will go towards constructing schools and establishing libraries for children in developing countries.

The moon’s the limit.
