Before going to the registration area on the event days, every relay member has to wear his/her own Number Bib (printed with the name of participant) at the front of the body. During registration at Start Point, one of the relay members has to wear Wristband with timing chip before starting the race.  It is necessary to pass the Wristband to relay member of the next section at Relay Point before continuing the race.

Go to the registration counter after gathering relay members at Start Point or Relay Points. The Organizer will:

  1. collect the duly signed Health Declaration and Disclaimer
  2. check the following required equipment (which must be carried along during the race for safety sake of participants):
Team Equipment- Wristband with timing chip (applicable to Relay Teams only)
Personal Equipment- Mobile Phone (with enough batteries throughout the race)

Note:  On the event days, every participant must bring along his/her own HKID/ passport or its clear copy for verifying identity upon request of our staff at Start Point / Checkpoints / Finish Point.

Luggage Handling Arrangement

NO luggage handling services will be provided to Relay Teams. They are advised to form their own support team during the race.

Arrive at Checkpoints (CP) (including Checkpoint 4 and Finish Point) and Sub-checkpoints (SCP)

The whole team should gather and register immediately upon arrival, and report to the staff at checkpoints or sub-checkpoints.
