Raleigh Challenge – Wilson Trail

The Raleigh Challenge – Wilson Trail (RCWT) is back in 2024! After 5 years, the full physical version of RCWT will be held again on 19 to 20 October 2024. The 2024 edition will be a special one as it features 40th Anniversary of Raleigh Hong Kong. Solo Category is newly added for your challenge.

The Raleigh Challenge – Wilson Trail (RCWT) was first launched as an internal event in 2000 with the aim to raise funds for Raleigh Hong Kong. Due to the good response from the participants, the event has been open to the public since 2003. The theme of the competition this year is “You Walk the Trail. Youth Change the World” which means each of your step on Wilson Trail will contribute to supporting more youth in serving the worldwide community!

The course is based around Wilson Trail, which runs through Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and the New Territories, with a total distance of about 80km for the Whole Course. Apart from challenging themselves with loads of climbing of more than 4000m in cumulative elevation, participants can enjoy the beautiful scenery along the trail including both suburbs and urban areas. As usual, there will be Team Category and Relay Team Category. Believe team spirit and friendship can be enhanced among teammates through training and racing together.

RCWT 2024 has been accredited on both ITRA and UTMB.
