Overall Review - New Course Record for UTMT, TTF & YTF The registration number of UTMT runners are more or less the same as that of last year, is only slightly decrease in YTF 50km and a bit increase in TTF 115km. The weather of this year is quite warm and sunny in day time (15.9℃ - 22.6℃), may be too hot in noon for European runners who experience freezing condition in this moment, generally, the weather is good for ultra running. There is significant increase in the number of runners from Japan this year, as UTMT is introduced by one of the popular Japanese Trail Running Magazine written by Hiroaki Matsunaga and there are cancellation of some races in Japan due to bad weather, so many Japanese came to Hong Kong joining UTMT in the end of 2017 and start of 2018. We also have more runners from our neighbour Asian countries including Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand; also have some runners from unfamiliar countries such as Afghanistan, Croatia.
