In March 2021, Run2gather celebrates its third anniversary. Following the Hong Kong Five Sacred Mountains Online Challenge, it once again launched the Hong Kong Mountain Series “Hong Kong Three Point Online Challenge” with Hong Kong local illustrator Terence Choi. At the same time, it was sponsored by the trendy fashion brand Graphene-X. , And also received gifts from JBL, Red Bull, San Miguel, Tiger Balm Active.

The 3Sharps of Hong Kong are the three sharpest peaks of Hong Kong, namely the Sharp Peak, the High Junk Peak in Sai Kung, and the Castle Peak in Tuen Mun. Because of their steep terrain and full of rubble, it is difficult to walk, so they are collectively called the Hong Kong Three Sharps. . Each route has its own characteristics and excellent scenery.

Run2gather is holding this event. It is different from the 5Peaks just held. There are no rankings and no gold, silver and bronze medals at the 3Sharps. All those who complete it will receive the same medal, because the purpose is not to hope that the participants will use the fastest time. Going to the top of each mountain, but slowly enjoying and knowing the nature that belongs to Hong Kong people together with three or five confidants. The mountains are always there, and people pass by every day. No matter the five mountains or the three sharps, I hope that the contestants can cherish the nature. Don’t destroy the original appearance when passing through any mountain trails for your own sake, and continue to share this beautiful nature with the next generation.

 Run2gather also specially arranges a conference photography and final cheering station on the third Saturday of each month during the event.

1. The event date of each station is changed to 2 months, May to June: High Junk Peak, July to August: Castle Peak, September to October: Sharp Peak.

2. Two routes are set up for each station: a, the leisure route and b, the original route (Optional to go to the top of the peak). Participants can choose their own route and it can also be regarded as completing the activity. All routes will be announced on the website at the beginning of registration.

3. Participants are suggested to send a message to us by WhatsApp 9015 2140 before and after the activity to make sure the personal safety of the participants.

Remarks:
1. The original route is not suitable for novices; it should be noted that summer climbing is more difficult. It is recommended to bring enough supplies and safety gloves to get on and off part of the original route.
2. There are no gold, silver and bronze awards, and time is not important; it aims to complete and enjoy the beautiful mountain scenery of Hong Kong.
3. Each participant must cherish the mountains and wilds:
a, Try to take the existing mountain trails to reduce soil erosion and sandification of the road surface;
b, try not to use trekking poles;
c, take away all the garbage;
d, leaving no traces, not damaging flowers, plants and trees;
e, Never light a fire.
