Supporting Team

Q: Are supporting teams allowed during the virtual race? 
A: Yes. Participants can arrange supporting teams at any point along the route, but they have to arrange transportation and parking facilities on their own. Also, please note that some points i.e. Shing Mun Reservoir and Hok Tau Reservoir, are located inside a restricted area managed by the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD). Cars without permits from AFCD are not allowed to enter the restricted area.

Equipment

Q: Is it possible to use a mobile phone as a torch or headlamp instead?
A: For personal safety, we strongly recommended every participant to bring a torch or headlamp. During the race, participants have to turn on mobile app TRAILME which requires enough power for recording their racing time. 

Q: Why is whistle a suggested personal equipment?
A: It is for the safety sake of participants who can use it for letting others know their location when necessary. Same as for torch or headlamp, every participant is recommended to bring a whistle along during the race.

Q: Will we encounter any dogs along the route?
A: Yes. Please be careful when you pass by villages close to Tseng Lan Shue, near Fan Sin Temple around Yuen Tun Ha.
