Hong Kong Route
The Hong Kong Run In The Dark will be on Hong Kong Island’s most famous running routes the Bowen Road.
The 4km or 8km route will be a 4km end to end run of flat country like road with stunning views of the Hong Kong skyline up close and elevated. The direction is 4km from Magazine Gap Road end through to Stubbs Road and back for those running 8km. Running this course at night will only make for a more spectacular run as the route is lit up by the Hong Kong skyline.
Green minibus 9 for the Magazine Gap Road end; buses 6, 15, 66, 76, 19, 41A or 63 — or green minibus 5, 2 or 24M — for the Stubbs Road end; or walk up Wan Chai Gap Road.
Whether you are completing the 4km run or 8km run, please aim to arrive at 19.30 (7.30pm) so that we can ensure everyone will receive their flashing armband and buff and have a group photo before we go running!
