TOUR DESCRIPTION

Details

Experience a unique mix of Hong Kong's past and present as you spot traces of the former British Colony running though Central. Starting at Statue Sqaure, where the adjacent Court of Final Appeal, Cenopath, and City Hall are all major landmarks forming our city's identity.

Jog along a labyrinth of elevated walkways above busy traffic, and gaze upwards at Central's many impressive skyscrapers. Set your foot on the Mid-level Escalators, longest outdoor escalators in the world, also visited by Batman the Dark Knight!

Discover the hangout of Dr. Sun Yat Sen and friends, where they plotted a nationwide revolution against the imperial Qing Dynasty which resulted in modern China. The plot was planned in a delightful courtyard that still exist today.

Weave through secret alleyways behind the trendy wine & dine neighbourhood of Soho, where you can also explore open street markets, old temples, art galleries, and even a prison compound! Don’t forget to ask your guide for food recommendations and insights on local specialities.

At the former administrative side of Central, pay a visit to the Chief Executive's resident at Government House, and cool down at St John's Cathedral, first Anglican church in the Far East. Finish with a post-run stretch next to the lion sculptures at the HSBC Main Building.

This tour is recommended to start outside rush hour (avoid weekdays 8-930am, 12-130pm, 5pm onwards), since Central can get super busy and you will otherwise be slaloming through the crowd.

  • DO YOU CANCEL IF IT RAINS?
    We will go ahead, rain or shine. However, in very severe weather (according to HK Observatory, a T8 Typhoon signal, or Black Rain warning signal, where public transport will become limited), you will be offered to return at a later time or to postpone for another day. Our guide will double check with you shall this happen.

    WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
    In spring and summer (April to October), HK can be very sunny and humid, sports cap, sunglasses, quick-dry outfit, and the use of sunscreen are highly recommended. In winter months from late November to Feb the weather can get chilly so It is better to have wear long sleeves and long pants. The Peak is usually a few degrees cooler so please also be aware of the temparature change, especially after a good sweat. 

    IS THERE WATER ON THE TOUR?
    Water is not included so we always recommend our guests to bring their own water on a hot day. On most tours there are a few public water fountains along the way, so if you are in need of a sip of water, simply ask the guide to point out a drinking spot.

    ARE WE RUNNING THE WHOLE TIME AND HOW WILL I KEEP PACE?
    All our runs will have short stops and rest. Our private runs are based on your preference. We can design to your running experience and can stop at the important sights for photo-taking. For some steep parts or busy streets, we will switch to walking pace too. Please do not worry - we will not leave you behind!

    Unfortunately, there is no storage for bags. Please travel light. We can only store some small objects in our backpack (mobile phones, keys. etc,).
