TransLantau by UTMB® Route Strategy (3) 140km

TransLantau by UTMB® 路線攻略(三) 140公里 - Cam2

Samson Lam |

This time, I will continue to analyze and introduce the newly added 140km route of TransLantau by UTMB®.


TransLantau140 is the first time to join the race, with a total distance of 140.2 kilometers and a total climb of 6489 meters. There are a total of 12 checkpoints and 13 road sections. Cross many different trails on Lantau Island. Some sections of the road have a large climb and the distance is long, so it will attract many experts to participate, but to participate in this distance, you need to have sufficient training and preparation beforehand.

The starting time of TransLantau140 is 12:00 midnight. On the one hand, adequate rest should be arranged before the game, and the work and rest before the story should also be adjusted to some extent. In addition, because the traffic on Lantau Island is not very convenient at night, the support must be well prepared and deployed.
