Hong Kong Hectic Hikes

HK$63,848.00 raised
HK$200,000.00 goal
2 months remaining

Message from Jack Boardman

Hi, I’m Jack and over the coming months I am attempting to hike all areas across Hong Kong and as many outlying islands as possible. What started as a way to relax and enjoy the great outdoors during this time of social distancing, has now become a mission where I want this exercise to be an opportunity to give back to the community in which I now live and work. 
My goal is each time I head out on these fortnightly adventures that I achieve 50km (over and above a full marathon). There will be at least 20 different hikes so that’s 1000’s of kilometers covered. Some are on paved roads or hilly trails but I’m prepared to jump, climb and swim where necessary! Should bad weather, injury or other factors impede the goal, I will try to at least complete a half marathon on the day and catch up on the remaining km’s at a later date. 
I have already completed all of Hong Kong island, TST to Shatin and back as well as a 50km stroll in East Kowloon and some others. So, join me on the rest of my journey and where possible if you could donate to this cause, it would be much appreciated. Thanks for your support.
