The CBRE Lantau 2 Peaks ™, 23km course like the name says, reaches the 2nd and 3rd highest peak of Hong Kong in Lantau Island – Lantau Peak reaching 934m and Sunset Peak taking participants close to 800m on a very technical and demanding course, with the total elevation gain of the 23km course almost 1900m compared to the 15km course having a total elevation gain 854m. The steep mountain trails are the most strenuous part of the race, with the payoff that participants can enjoy the magnificent views around if they have a chance to look up.
The start and the finish line are both located at the Tung Chung Citygate which is sea level.
This years’ CBRE Lantau 2 Peaks did not have food on the course or at finish, due to health safety measures, however organizers were allowed water dispensers at checkpoints and the finish for proper rehydration. All participants must be triple vaccinated, perform PCR tests within 48 hours of the event, conduct RAT test race morning, use the leave home safe app to confirm blue color, wear masks at the start & finish areas and take part in wave starts.
The event could not happen without the generous support of the title sponsor CBRE and the supporting partners Action X Store, Royale International, Around DB, Life On Lantau, Fitz, St Johns Ambulance, C3Fit, SaveWo, Watsons Water, Citygate Outlets, ITRA, New Life Plastics and the beneficiary Ocean Recovery Alliance.
