It goes without saying that food and drinks are crucial for teams as they walk the 100 km over 48 hours. That is why we at Oxfam Hong Kong and our sponsors are doing all we can to provide support and food to all teams.
To ensure that there is enough to go around for all participants, we would appreciate it if participants (please show your number bib) only took what is necessary. We also hope all support teams will prepare their own meals, so that the 1,600 participants will be able to get the supplies they need along the trail.
Participants will need to bring along their own reusable cutlery and containers for hot drinks and food.
