TNF100 Course Route Changes Update

Latest Update on The North Face 100 Ultra Trail Challenge Hong Kong 2023 Race Route Adjustment

[Important Update] Race notice of The North Face 100 Ultra Trail Challenge Hong Kong 2023 (TNF100)


The North Face 100 Ultra Trail Challenge Hong Kong 2023 Open for Registration on August 22 Adding new 16K Races and 100K Start at Night for the First Time

Like much of the world, weather has become less predictable in Hong Kong in recent years. Historically, mid-December weather could be expected to be relatively low (~50%) humidity and in the 12-25℃ range during the day, with temperatures possibly falling below 10℃ at night on the highest peaks. In recent years, we have seen December days above 25℃ with high humidity, though that is not the most likely case scenario. Rain is infrequent in December, but when it does rain, temperatures on the mountains can be quite chilly.  Thunder and lightning are rare. Please check weather forecast before the race and make sure to wear appropriate clothing to protect yourself..

You will receive a confirmation after balloting (and for 100 km racers after we check your credential). We will also publish a list of race entrants to the website by mid-September once all racer’s credentials have been checked and will update this list from time to time as required.

Race pack collection will take place the week before the race at a The North Face shop. Race participants will be informed of pick up location details closer to the race

Cancellation is not allowed. Cancellation is only permitted with valid reason subject to the organizer’s approval (which will ordinarily be granted provided that we are able to take a qualified substitute from our waiting list). There will be cancellation fee of HKD$100. All cancellation must be submitted prior to  15 November, 2023.

Your application will not proceed out of balloting if your credentials are not accepted.  Note that race entry credentials are only required for the 100 km race.

Please email [email protected]. Please provide mobile phone and email contact details and whether you prefer to assist at a checkpoint, do some hiking (forerunning, sweeping, etc.) or both.

The purpose of the qualification is to insure that those who enter have the experience and fitness to have a good chance of finishing the race without being cut off.  50 km and 100 km race experience is the most direct comparison, but the organisers will also consider other race experience. Obviously someone who has completed a 100 miler, for example, would be qualified to enter the 100 km race.

Many people have asked about marathon experience as race entry criteria. Generally, we expect that anyone who finishes a marathon in under 5 hours would likely be able to finish a 50 km trail race within each of the checkpoint cut off times.  We will also consider other races of other distances in assessing qualification and will consider as well eligibility submissions based upon pre-Covid era results.

Previous editions of TNF100 were awarded 2 UTMB points for our 50Km finishers and 4 UTMB points for our 100Km finishers. Applications have been made to UTMB and iTRA for this edition and we are awaiting confrimatin from both of them.
