More Than A Race
Juxtaposition | Memoir | Altruism | Journey
More Than A Race follows the 100-kilometre journey of some of the world’s best ultra runners in the 2014 Vibram Hong Kong 100, the city’s original solo ultra marathon. The race unfolds along Hong Kong’s hidden trails, weaving around postcard images of towering skyscrapers, beyond the iconic skyline. The juxtaposition of concrete jungle against the natural beauty of the city’s unique outdoors is captured in this short film and embodied in this quintessential Hong Kong race.
