Thank you for visiting our page! We are four friends, with 10 children between us who have a shared enjoyment of the HK outdoors and the trails the city has to offer and who are ready to take on the challenge of the Oxfam Trailwalker: 100K (continuously) along Hong Kong's Maclehose Trail on Fri Nov 15th 2019. We will be hiking all through the night and will need all the help and encouragement we can get so please donate generously! The city’s first and longest hiking trail, the MacLehose Trail, has been named one of the best hikes in the world by the National Geographic Society. Fayhee, the author of a dozen of books on mountaineering, who has completed the 3,380km Appalachian Trail and the 1,368km Arizona Trail in the United States, said he had heard about the MacLehose Trail as a youngster as it had apparently been used for fitness competitions between the various national components of the British army. “While Hong Kong may be one of the most densely populated places on the planet, the surrounding New Territories are rural and quiet – and they are tough country to hike,” Fayhee said. “The MacLehose Trail makes constant, grueling 1,000-plus-foot descents followed immediately by ascents along the fingers of ridgetops, making it more challenging than its mileage suggests,” he added. Please help to donate to Oxfam: Oxfam Trailwalker is one of the largest fundraising sporting events in Hong Kong. Since 1986, more than 100,000 participants have raised over HK$575 million to support Oxfam’s various poverty alleviation and emergency relief projects in Africa and Asia, including Hong Kong and mainland China. However, there are still around one billion people living in poverty, and they really need your support. Thank you so much!
