You’ll visit brand new MTR stations, country parks and a long riverfront promenade on this scenic run through Kowloon and the New Territories. Monkeys will cheer you on along the 150m climb between Hin Keng and Diamond Hill stations. On a hot day, consider running this route northbound so that you can end your run with a swim at Wu Kai Sha beach.

Kai Tak to Wu Kai Sha

Marvel at the newly built Kai Tak station before running along the northern edge of Kowloon, through the country park and into the Shing Mun river valley. From here, enjoy running along the scenic waterfront promenade all the way to the end of the line.

Wu Kai Sha to Kai Tak

Enjoy 13km of easy running along the pedestrian paths that line the Shing Mun river before passing the newly built Hin Keng station and beginning a steady climb out of the river valley towards Kowloon. Running in the shadow of Lion Rock, you’ll make your way through residential neighbourhoods to Kai Tak station.

Shorter Options

With all of the stations from Tai Wai to Wu Kai Sha located less than 500m from the riverfront promenade, it is easy to do a short point-to-point run along the water. Consider doing Tai Wai station to Shek Mun station (4.7km) or Shek Mun station to Wu Kai Sha station (7km).

Longer Options

Several pedestrian bridges cross the Shing Mun river, connecting the pedestrian paths on both sides. Cross over to the west side of the river to tack on some extra kilometres to your run.


Notes

Exit B of Wu Kai Sha station is a covered bus terminal. Walk through the terminal to Sha On street to begin your run.
