The Coastal Trail Challenge is back, and you’re invited to participate!

The Trail — a journey of (re)discovery

An iconic 65-km-long loop around Hong Kong Island divided into 8 stages, the Coastal Trail is a unique hiking trail. Walking the trail is a wonderful way to (re)discover the city’s abundant history, heritage, greenery and, of course, its scenic shores.

The Challenge — are you in?

Walk the trail between December 1, 2022, and January 31, 2023, and you’ll get a goodie bag! You’ll also have the chance to win amazing prizes.
This year, the Coastal Trail Challenge is divided into 2 events: Leisure and Racing.


Explore any, several or all 8 stages of the Coastal Trail in your own time and at your own pace while completing a fun scavenger hunt.



The faster, the better! Pick from the 3 run distances: 65km Coastal Run in one go, 15km Harbourfront Run, or the 25km Hill Run.


Weekly Photo Contest

To add to the fun, you can also participate in our weekly photo challenges.
