It’s time to get out on the trails and join the Raleigh Challenge – Wilson Trail 2021 Virtual Race. Please register for our event via our registration system. This year we use TRAILME to record racing results. It is an authentic and innovative app that provides precise real-time route tracking for runners. Also friends and family can also support the race online through the app. On top of that, the instant leaderboard on TRAILME brings about new experiences to engage runners virtually.  Please download and register the TRAILME app via App Store (iPhone) or Google Play Store (Android).

The Wilson Trail is a 78-km long distance trail in Hong Kong, which runs through Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and the New Territories. Apart from pushing yourself against the clock and challenging yourself with more than 3000m cumulative elevation, you can encounter the beautiful scenery along the trail including both suburbs and urban areas. 

Background information about Raleigh Challenge – Wilson Trail

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 this competition is “You Walk the Trail. Youth Change the World” which means each of your steps on Wilson Trail will contribute to supporting more youth in serving the worldwide community!
