Cloudy and Rainy during event days
As we understand from the Hong Kong Observatory, it will be mainly cloudy and rainy during Oxfam Trailwalker 2016 (18-20 Nov). The temperature will be around 23 degrees in the urban areas and will be lower at highland, especially during night time with rain.
Walkers, support team members and volunteers are advised to take the following measures:
- When you start, the weather will be moderately hot but temperate may drop significantly at night time with rain and wind. Please bring a raincoat with you to keep yourself dry and warm, especially when you stay at highland for a long time.
- Ask your support team to study the road closure arrangements at some of the check points during event. To help alleviate congestion problem along the trail, please use public transport as far as possible. If driving is inevitable, please be patient and try to give way as much as possible, especially at sections next to villages (e.g Kei Ling Ha & Sha Tin Pass)
- Do not light fire at country side and help keep the nature clean!
- If you do not feel well before starting, DO NOT persist.
