Beer Dash raises $60,000 (PHOTOS)

Fun-runners fanned out across South Lantau this morning in the 10th Lantau International Beer Dash.

In overcast but warm conditions, more than 200 people ran the 5km course, starting from the catchwater above Tong Fuk, down the old Tung Chung Road and then along the expanse of Cheung Sha beaches (both of them).

To ward off thirst, five refreshment stations, generously provisioned by sponsors, waylaid them.

Organiser Mel Potgeiter said this year’s event had raised more than HK$60,000. The funds will go to local animal protection groups.

Today’s action as recorded by Lantau News’ photographic team:

Scooting along

And again?


Waving the flag

Don’t even think of messing with our beer

When the jig is up

Bracing for the tape

Across the line
