The race is very well organised, with theh first half being through old Macau and includes 2 stuning and different bridge runs. The 2nd half is a little repetitive along Cotai strip. Temperature was around 22 degrees with a constant plaasant cool breeze. Refreshment stations were very frequent and very well stocked. I was very pleasantly suprised by this marathon.

I was very lucky with the temperature from 18 degress to perhaps mid 20s by the finish, this made the run very comfortbale. A few tough hills but not a mountain run, a very pleasant trail. Extremely well organised race, good course, plentiful refreshment stops, excelelnt execution.

Not taxis or motirbike taxis around so hard (and hence unnecessarily expensive) to get between hotel and race venue although I was only 7km away. Also meant I missed the race briefing which adds a penalty of 30 mins (not included in my time here :).

Starts at 4.30 to avoid heat . A miserable route except for the first 2 kms. Mostly along a multi lane road and back again for the first 21k ith only one lane closed to traffic. Then 10K along a busy street dodging traffic. The last 10ks are soul destroying, loops around a dull, shade-less (Thu Thiem) a new urban area under development. Drink stops are plentiful throughout the course, with volunteers every few kilometres to cheer you along on the first half – after which the traffic is too dreadful even for the volunteers.

Depsite a 4.30am start the humidity is high. The run is a repat lopp and on teh second loop the sun is up and the heat intensfies. The traffic is also heavy so between the noise, heat and exhaust fumes the enjoyment is lost.

Whilst much of the run is on a highway through west kowloon, it was suprisingly pleasant. With bright sunshine and 13 degrees the conditions were perfect. Several very long bridges and tunnels add some elevation. The home stretch along the harbour front on HK island was great, but collided with shorter distance runners who provided a human traffic jam when you least expect it. If i could have run the last 7k faster it would have been impossible to do so. A very well organised event for all logistics.

Extremely well organised. An amazing route around the city and passing nearly all the most famous landmarks. Great spectators align the route with a constant cheer. A tad cold for someone living in Asia, combined with a mostly flat course gave me a personal best.

An inaugural event, well put together by organisers and city. Bit heavy on the ride loops, Rather hilly terrain but great ocean views. Very fortunate to have an overcast day, I may have missed cut off otherwise.

Swim 53:21, Ride 3:55, Run 2:33 and too long in change overs!

My previous marathons have all been Asian city based. Whilst I have run some mountain trails in Dalat and Sapa Vietnam, none compare. This marathon is simply breath taking, every corner you turn offers a new stunning panorama. With under 200 participants it is a very personal and fun experience. I ran the first half with my 14 year old daughter and as she approached mile 20, I reminded her of how lucky we were to be here, to be healthy and to be able to run in such a incredible environment. In previous marathons the last few miles are a mental challenge, here the experience is far more serene as the mental duress is extinguished by the splendor if the mountain scenery.

A good crowd racing. Tough heat wise by the time you are coming back down the East Coast and the sun is up. Post race really would have been good to have some shaded arras to recover. Otherwise very well organised and a great city race.
