It's 7.5km with a 450m ascent (To Hong Kong's famous Victoria Peak). I've never done it before because it's all paved which I don't like and also because I'm more an endurance guy rather than a short distance runner. Anyhow, I got out of my comfort zone and signed up to do it for a month. It took me 5 attempts to complete it under an hour which was my aim. It meant running flat out on all flat and downhill sections but to improve on that time I'll have to run up hill too....just too much in the summer heat that's now kicked in. To beat my record of 58 mins I think I'll leave it till next winter and revert back to my normal trails.
The big question is how far can you run/walk in 39 minutes?
