WALOB IV

Tseng Lan Shue

Didn't join that series last year as I think it's too far and quite remote for a beginner..... so I miss something
As predicted, all the way via the Wilson's trail until the catchment ; )
I planned to have some road running before the weekend but I can forget it after running all along the catchment today
Stricky checkback at Wilson's up Tung Yeung Shan which brings the whole pack together!
Oh.... more running need
But I'm quite curious that what the picture if I did not going up the Wilson's trail and keep on going further o_O
The internal gps tell me that we're somewhere around Tai Lo, bingo! And starting from here, a wonderful WALOB shiggy is hidden ; ) And I can hear "oops"... "ouch"..... shouting all the way beyind me
What's an unfortunate that I stepped on a steep surface of boulder and suddenly drop ~half metre..... my leg hurt and can't move Luckily, I can still able to walk after a short break (but in the beginning no more pushing power of the lower leg)
Seems it's an endless narrow contouring shiggy trail @@
Fantastic! Exit near around buffalo pass and now we can fly again
Oh no!!! It sounds that I'm not okay as my ankle fefeel tight and seems locked o_O
All I can do is going downhill steps by steps. After reaching the concrete, dogs barked loudly and one of them approaching me just within metre @@ Calm down and keep walking.....
I should sprint down the Mang Kung Wo road as usual but all I can do is running like a single leg hop @@
OMG.... WALOB..... suddenly turn right into the trail again
On home after passing some huts and back to Pak Sha Wan
Thanks for the nice trail, great job!
p.s. Now.... I remember that shiggy trail maybe the one which trapped many runners during the Raleigh Mountain Marathon many years ago?!

Hopeless comes out of (temporary) retirement to keep up his 100% record of WALOB attendance's.
He was not disappointed! Fantastic shiggyfest from about 3.8km to 7km before the run in to the finish at Hebe Haven Yacht Club and a curry On On.
Wimps split at about 2.5km - before the CB set heading up to the Wilson Trail. Missed or not heard by Gobi Lo who forged on, chasing down the Flying Fux on the Rambos.
Elevation gain and loss was : +368.7 / -558.0 metres.
4 falls, no submissions, and a hand & thumb bandaged up meant another memorable and excellent WALOB with about $2,000,000 of Hell Bank money on trail.
Well done the hares Lost In Space & Octopussy!
