Lantau Milestone Retreat Overview

New to The Green Race running retreat line-up, this 4 – day trail tour over the Hari Raya Puasa Holiday in Singapore and Malaysia takes runners across the length and breadth of Hong Kong’s largest island, Lantau. Escape to Lantau’s hidden pools, waterfalls, beaches, local villages, temples, giant Buddhas, old forts and stay in an exclusive private hidden resort away from the hustle bustle of the city.

Only a 4-hour flight from Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, explore terrain ranging from sea level to the 2nd highest peak in Hong Kong and the highest on Lantau Island, Lantau Peak (934m). Close proximity, ease of access to excellent trails and elevation galore makes Hong Kong a trail runner’s paradise.
