Legend goes that Kowloon was named in the year 1278 by the boy Emperor Bing, of the Southern Song Dynasty. Noticing the eight hills of Kowloon (Kowloon Peak, Tung Shan, Tate's Cairn, Temple Hill, Unicorn Ridge, Lion Rock, Beacon Hill, Crow's Nest), the emperor was pleased to name them the “Eight Dragons”—but a quick-witted courtier pointed out that the emperor was a dragon himself, making it nine dragons.
The 9 Dragons Ultra enters its 3rd edition in 2019 with a growing reputation as one of Hong Kong’s most challenging trail events. The 50/50 stage race is unique in the territory - and in Asia Trail Master - and is considered ultra tough. So is the 50 miles single stage in itself already. No surprise this is the Hong Kong SuperTrail, with bonus ATM Championship points for all finishers.
