Hard As Nayls Overview

Hard As Nayls, a fund-raising event held in the memory of Andy Naylor, is known as “Clearwater Bay’s Toughest Running Event for all Ages”. HAN takes us across breathtakingly beautiful Clearwater Bay Country Park and Ma On Shan Country Park. The race visits off-the-beaten track trails and is held in one of the most scenic areas of Hong Kong, offering sweeping vistas of the South China Sea from High Junk Peak.

We are pleased to support this trail race and carry it forward as part of our Green Race family of events. We’re also pulling out all the stops to make this one of our best charity fundraisers to date, with the Naylor Family, Sai Kung Stray Friends Foundation and Exchange & Empower as equal beneficiaries.

Through net registrations and runner donations, our goal is to raise HK$50,000. Together, Hard As Nayls and The Green Race invite you to celebrate the love of trail running, community involvement and family participation on 13 December 2020.

We Support

Exchange & Empower

Exchange & Empower are one of the official charities of the Hard As Nayls Run. The Exchange and Empower program is a collaboration between Hong Kong Trail Running Women and legendary trail runner and feminist Mira Rai. The program aims to provide talented young female runners in Nepal the opportunity to broaden their horizons, experience different lifestyles, and share their stories and culture with others.

Sai Kung Stray Friends

Sai Kung Stray Friends is a Hong Kong non-profit charity which helps over 100 stray, abandoned, sick and injured dogs by fostering them until a kind and responsible owner can be found to take ownership of the dogs. They also work on educating the public to neuter their dogs to reduce the number of unwanted stray and abandoned dogs to minimise dog suffering. Every dog that is rescued by Sai Kung Stray Friends is health checked, de-sexed, vaccinated and given flea, tick and heartworm prevention. They also try to provide any necessary treatment and emergency surgery that may be needed.

Hard As Nayls

The Hard As Nayls was set up in 2015 in memory of Andy Naylor a former Police Superintendent who spoke fluent Cantonese and was one of Hong Kong's top runners who drowned during the 2012 New York Ironman. Andy's records as a runner speak for themselves with a 2:32:39 and 74th place at the London Marathon in 2009 and 1:12:14 at the UNICEF half marathon in 2008.
