Round Trip Course – Tornado 160

Published on: 28/05/2020

Route Map

No closing time is set for checkpoints before Turning Point, but participants are still required to record their arrival time at these checkpoints with their timing chip. Those who fail to arrive before the closing time will not be allowed to continue their race.

Apart from traveling between Quarry Bay and Yau Tong by MTR, participants must complete the entire race on foot. Traveling on any forms of transportation or subsidiary tools during the Event is not allowed. For the reverse route of Tornado 160, if MTR is not yet in service when the participants arrive at Yau Tong Station during midnight, the Organizer will provide the transportation from Yau Tong to Quarry Bay.

The reverse route of Tornado 160 does not include the section along Violet Hill. After reaching Hong Kong Parkview, participants need to take Tai Tam Reservoir Road to run directly to Finish Point.
