Cam2 Lantau will be held first on October 22, 2023. Although the distance of this event is only 22.7 kilometers, the shortest distance among all stages, it climbs up to 1,640 meters. It will definitely test the runners’ climbing ability and descending skills.

The starting point is at Tung Chung Wen Tung Road Park. After starting, runners will follow Wen Tung Road to Qia Tung Road and turn right onto the stairs, then turn to Yu Tung Road and go straight along the pedestrian road. At the end of Qia Tung Road, turn right Head towards the Tung Chung Hou Wong Temple Public Toilet and the Tung O Ancient Road, turn left at Ngong Ping 360 Rescue Trail and go up the mountain, and then start the first uphill section. There is a completely flat road section of about 3.6 kilometers from the starting point to the Ngong Ping 360 Rescue Trail. Runners should control their speed according to their ability to avoid physical exhaustion when going up and down the mountain later.

The initial section of the Ngong Ping 360 Aided Trail is mainly made up of stone steps and dirt roads, with a medium-to-high climb. It then turns to mainly wooden boardwalks and becomes flat at the Maitreya Turning Station. Although this uphill section is only about 3.1 kilometers, the climb exceeds 500 meters, which will be a major test of your climbing ability.

After the Maitreya Hill turnaround station, go straight to Ngong Ping Market and Ngong Ping Square along the Maitreya Hill Countryside. After passing Ngong Ping Square, take the small road to Ngong Ping Interesting Trail and arrive at checkpoint 1 near the tea plantation. Since the section after the Maitreya Mountain turnaround station is relatively flat, runners can make adjustments here to prepare for the climb up the mountain later.

In addition, if you are conducting road trials or training, you can replenish your supplies at the Ngong Ping store.

After leaving Checkpoint 1, pass the Ngong Ping Fun Trail and then follow the Phoenix Trail to the top of Phoenix Mountain, the highest point of the race. This uphill section is not long, but has a large climb, which will definitely test the runners' physical fitness. After reaching the top of Fenghuang Mountain, you will start to go downhill along the Fenghuang Trail to Pak Kung Au, cross Tung Chung Road, and reach checkpoint 2. Skilled downhill skills can help you gain an advantage in this section.

After checkpoint 2, we will continue along the Phoenix Trail to Dadong and Erdong. This is the final uphill section of the race, which tests the runners' endurance. This section requires steady performance to maintain the chance of winning. After going east, follow the Phoenix Trail down the mountain to Nanshan. The beginning of this period will be the last chance for masters from all walks of life to compete against time and challenge the top speed. After arriving at Nanshan, turn to the Nanshan Ancient Road to Luditang Village. The road conditions are relatively rough. Finally, via Luk Ti Tong Village Trail and Mui Wo Rural Committee Road, you will reach the final destination, Mui Wo Galaxy Garden.
