Rainbow Trek 2007 in Hong Kong Trail

Rainbow Trek is an annual trek event organize by Rainbow Project to raise money for an organisation that educates Autistic children in Hong Kong.

Wheeew! we did it! We joined for the second time around the same event we had two years ago, where we won third place on 25K race.

Participants mostly students from HK island, and some corporate people competed in teams of four and aim was to complete the trek in less than twelve hours. Each team committed to raise a minimum of $12,000 for the Rainbow Project.

This time, our team is composed of William Caluza, Errol Labuguen, Warren Santos and yours truly. Our team paid HK12000 dollars as entry fee, sponsored by QuestNet, generous company of William's wife.

We only finished 25K race in 4 hours. Unbelievable! Right. We actually didn't go thru the whole trail, but instead, we took a short cut. We've walked only about 15 to 18 kilometers. Not bad actually, although big brother William got cramps in the last 3 kilometers of 25K trail.

The weather was perfect, the air is cool and the sun is up. Yet, we still felt the heat in the last few kilometers. The best part of our trail is when we stopped at around 11am and have a rest while we eat Adobo and rice. Boy, we had that good time.

We all decided to take this event every year. Next year, we will probably complete the 50K race.

Here's some pictures of us in action!
