Outward Bound Adventure Race 2020



Shake up your routine, ditch the urban landscape, unleash your team potential and experience a different Hong Kong!

Looking for a more exciting way to spend time with friends? Bored with the usual email/memo communication with your colleagues?  Convinced that trail races are only open to elite athletes? The Adventure Race is for YOU!

Feel the magic of Hong Kong’s countryside, taste how close it lies to the city with stunning views. Spend a fantastic day with friends challenging yourselves and refreshing your body/mind. Join the “Outward Bound Adventure Race 2020” on 1 Mar 2020 with 3 other friends and enjoy a different race experience!

The competition course is on the Hong Kong Island, crossing cityscape, countryside and coastal views along the way. Your team of 4 can choose between the Challenge route (16km) or the Elite route (20 km). Either one will test your team's physical strength, brainpower and cooperation through a series of stimulating tasks, including trail running, kayaking, and orienteering, punctuated by a series of mystery challenges.  Corporate teams are also welcomed which helps to enhance team dynamics, team work, communication skills in a fun, lively and unforgettable manner.

Proceeds of the Adventure Race will be used to support disadvantaged groups in Hong Kong to join Outward Bound training programmes, which help them develop their self-confidence, life skills and positive attitudes to equip themselves for a successful future at school and work.
