Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
Any runner will tell you that it’s easier to get out of bed for a half marathon or 50k trail race than a light 10k on a Tuesday morning. The hardest part about long-distance running isn’t the physical effort – it’s the monotony of routine. That’s why it’s so important to have a great group to run with, a network of like-minded people that motivate you to get out the door.
If you’ve ever walked by the ferry piers at night – or, more likely, visited the Beer Bay for an adult beverage or two after work – you’ve no doubt seen groups of runners manoeuvring their way through the crowds. Same with Bowen Road pretty much any time of day, especially on weekends. Our melting pot of a city has become a hub for the running community, with loads of great groups that hit the trails, tracks and pavements everywhere imaginable, from Aberdeen to Kowloon to Lantau. These are some of the best of them.
RECOMMENDED: If you aren’t into running, you can still enjoy Hong Kong’s abundance of nature on one of these great hikes.
