    Event Overview:

    Guilin is famous worldwide for its magnificent scenery and is one of China's most popular tourist destinations. The standard tourist trip, however, involves sitting on boats or buses and being a spectator as the countryside rolls by.

    Instead, Challenge participants will run, bike, raft, clamber through caves, and abseil off cliffs through and in some of the world's most stunning scenery and remote villages as part of a multi-sport adventure race weekend.

    Why the Protrek Guilin Weekend Challenge:

    Guilin is a uniquely beautiful location in the world, yet no adventure races have been organized there to date. Guilin also has the advantage of convenient location and good infrastructure. It possesses a modern, international airport and by plane is just over one hour flight from Hong Kong. There are also direct flights to Guilin from Japan, Macau and several southeast Asian cities. Guilin offers international quality accommodation and easy access to karst limestone cliffs, rural villages and clear streams.

    The Protrek Guilin Weekend Challenge is a 2-day adventure race. The first day, Saturday, March 9th, 2002 will be the harder day, with the first teams expected to finish in approximately 5 hours. Tired competitors will have to rally on Sunday the 10th for a shorter, but still strenuous adventure challenge of approximately 4 hours for the first teams. Cumulative time for the 2 days will be used to determine the winners. The race format is designed to allow participants time to relax, recover and enjoy the local ambiance in addition to competing.
