On Day 2 of the outing, the group went to Peak Tram Station and took the Peak Tram car to Victoria Peak – the starting point of Hong Kong Trail Section 1. Section 1 and 2 are mostly paved walkway; Section 3 is jungle trail which is very pleasant to run. Overall, the trails are mostly going downhill with flat earth-based terrain.
At the finishing point of Section 3, we walked uphill towards Wan Chai Gap Park; refreshed in a toilet of the park, and later took a public bus to the nearest MTR Station.
We started the trail run at 8:30 a.m. and the last person completed the course by 1:00 p.m. for a total time of 4 hr 30 min. We saw the last distance post #37, and we covered about 19km (distance apart of two distance posts is 500 meters).
