A unique event, Weez Walk is the Asian equivalent of Shorewalkers’ Great Saunter, taking place over an extended period during January and February each year in Hong Kong. It’s a walk OR run around the 62.5km (39 mi) perimeter of Hong Kong Island. A little longer than the Great Saunter with more hills, the event is challenging to complete in one go, and hence is broken into six sections so that participants can choose to tackle all at once or in smaller segments with the course record being 5 hours 44 minutes.

Weez Walk: A  Saunter Around Hong Kong

I founded Weez Walk in 2021 in order to raise funds for a local charity providing mental health services for young people in Hong Kong. While we’re still in our infancy, we had over 800 participants this year, with our goal to be as popular as the Great Saunter and attract over 2500 participants.

800 Starters

The route covers Hong Kong’s urban skyline, the old industrial areas of East Hong Kong, the rural beauty of the south, as well as the beautiful beaches. Yes, Hong Kong has beaches! Along the way, you can see fishermen at work, old Buddhist temples, swimming piers, and one of the busiest harbors in the world. In addition, we commission works of street art for our Weez Art project, of which we’re proud and gets people talking.

10,000 Gods Point

This year I did the full walk twice as I was out supporting our main sponsors. My best time is 12 hours 37 minutes, nothing to worry the record books, and being a glutton for punishment, I decided I needed to do the Great Saunter, so I’m heading to New York soon. I’m very excited about the event, looking forward to seeing the beauty of the Manhattan shoreline, hopefully to complete the whole route, and make a few new friends along the way. Look out for me, I’ll be wearing my Weez Walk T-shirt!
