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 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 83km for the Whole Course. Apart from challenging themselves with loads of climbing of more than 3000m in cumulative elevation, participants can enjoy the beautiful scenery along the trail including both suburbs and urban areas. Except for Tornado 160, other courses must be competed in teams. Believe team spirit and friendship can be enhanced among teammates through training and racing together.
