The 2016 Lantau International Beer Dash: A great success
- Written by arounddb, 19 March 2016
The eighth Lantau International Beer Dash set off from Tong Fuk yesterday, March 19.
So popular is the event that all the spots filled within a week of opening registration. Melanie, who founded the event in 2009, decided in 2012 to limit the number of runners to just 350. “This way we can ensure that the race is manageable and fun for both the participants and the volunteers,” she says. “We have participants from Hong Kong and Kowloon side, and some have come all the way from Japan, Australia and Germany. But our regulars are from South Lantau and Discovery Bay.”
