    Can't believe it's 4 years since we did this Rich. Good luck mate. I'm sure you'll easily smash our time and get sub 20 ... just don't pull up after the first 2 km ;-) Cheers, J

    Go forth and prosper and show that government workers have a conscience ... and better than ... those that don’t.

About Rich's sub-20 100km Mac Challenge

Four years ago I ran the Maclehose (Trailwalker route) in 23 hours and I've been training for 8 months so I can put the pedal to the metal and beat that by at least 3 hours. On the day I'll have support from logistics genius, Paul Greenlaw, who'll be supporting all day and late into the night (hopefully not too late into the night! big thanks to you Paul), making sure I'm recharged with food and water and I'm kicked out of the support points super pronto. Raising money for RUN Hong Kong will really focus our attention on achieving that goal for you sponsors and helping to rehabilitate vulnerable refugees through sports, education, and beyond! 

The Maclehose Trail runs from the east of the New Territories in Hong Kong  to the west. The course is 97.94 km long and +6,562m of elevation gain. It will be a semi-supported run, meaning I will run with and carry at all times my own gear, food and water but I will have support points along the way to stock up on food and water.

The running community has been supporting the work of RUN HK for many years. And I've heard many testimonies to the powerful work that it does. A volunteer at RUN HK writes ' RUN HK (Rebuild, Unite, Nurture) ...(is) a small charity that is making a mighty impact among the most vulnerable refugees in Hong Kong by helping them to recover from trauma and creating a resilient and empowered refugee community through various programmes including sports. Over the years that I have been involved with RUN HK I have seen firsthand the tangible positive difference the mental health rehabilitation programmes is making. No surprise that the UNHCR recently praised RUN HK for its work.'
