Ultra Trail Hong Kong opens the Asia Trail Master series
The Asia Trail Master series (ATMs) organisational committee is delighted to welcome on the calendar a brand new and challenging event in our home base Hong Kong. Ultra Trail Hong Kong will be held from 27 February to 1 March in the Northern Territories, and will offer two long distance courses of 170km (9500 Hm) and 92km (5100 Hm). It will be the first event of the inaugural Asia Trail Master series and destined to be a worthy one!
Ultra Trail Hong Kong wishes to connect with flagship long distance trail running events such as UTMB (France) and UTMF (Japan) and as such differentiate itself from other established races in Hong Kong. Organiser Augustine Wong has a long-term strategy for Ultra Trail Hong Kong and is looking forward to the collaboration with Asia Trail Master and turn the new event into a highlight on many a runner's calendar. The start will be given in the North West New Territories on Friday the 27th of February and finish at Sai Kung.
For the first edition, registrations are not unlimited so it is recommended to sign up early. You can do so easily online via the RTS-based online form.
Every finisher will score points for the 2015 Asia Trail Master ranking according to the standard points regulations:
- 170km finishers: 170 kilometre points + performance points for long distance
- 92km finishers: 92 kilometre points + performance points for middle distance
