Adult race course description - Level of difficulty: If you are a beginner we would highly recommend some sort of upper body training (outrigging, dragonboating, fitness centre) as this is not a walk in the park and ocean kayaking can be more difficult from bad weather, large swells, currents, waves, bad navigation, etc.

Kayak 3 km - Nim Shue Wan kayak start. This is the beach at the back of Discovery Bay - 5 minute walk from DBAY main plaza ferry pier walking WEST towards the Mui Wo pier. Cut thru bus station and LEFT on main road until other ferry pier at Nim Shue Wan.

NO SHORT CUTTING HEADLAND THIS YEAR AFTER EXPLOSIVE DEPOT. TOO MANY BROKEN PADDLES LAST YEAR. Kayak to Man Kok Tsui beach.

Run 5 km (Hill behind explosive depot at Man Kok Tsui) IF YOU GET LOST OR TAKE LONGER ROUTE IT WILL BE 6 KM.

MUST STAY MINIMUM 50 METERS AWAY FROM EXPLOSIVE DEPOT FENCE AS WE HAVE BEEN WARNED BY PLA. Please no cutting close to fence. Many trails to use higher up hill. There will be 1 checkpoint to find. See map posted below.

Kayak 3 km (From Man Kok Tsui back to Nim Shue Wan).

Course markings - Only beach and mtn check points marked as teams MUST NAVIGATE themselves. Highly recommend you bring map in waterproof holder or ziplock bag. Compass or GPS recommended if you don't know area.
