Contestants come from all over Hong Kong and the popularity of the event is such that each year it heavily over subscribed. Last year we had over 550 contestants; it is the biggest race of its kind in Asia. More information is available on the website www.team-fear.com
The main duties on the day of the race are marshaling and helping to clear up the course afterwards. Help is also needed the Saturday before the race (Nov 23rd) to clear bushes and undergrowth on the course, pumping up, checking and repairing inflatable kayaks, constructing a beach assault course, various course marking, and helping register and load bikes on trucks. As the race takes place in the hills around D.B. there may be a bit of hiking and hard work involved (although nothing too onerous).
