We trust you and your team members are “in training” and looking forward to the 8th Edition - 2017 MGM - Macau Eco TrailHiker to be held on Saturday November 4th.
The devastation of typhoon Hato that hit Macau on August 23 is still being felt in Macau and our hearts go out to those who lost their loved ones during that awful event that wreaked havoc on Macau. It is for this reason that Macau Eco TrailHiker in partnership with our new title sponsor and the Macau government is even more committed to ensuring that the Macau Eco TrailHiker event goes ahead as planned. The Macau community needs to come together and try and put behind it the events of August 23. Much work has been done in clearing the many hundreds of fallen trees both on the 10K and 30K TrailHiker courses and we are very grateful to the various Macau running community groups and the IACM for the good work done so far. The 10K trail is 90% clear and the 30K is 80% clear of blockages, and clearing work continues to progress thanks mainly to IACM who now have more manpower on the trails to fully open these trails. We trust the rest of the 30K course will open up shortly, and we will keep you updated on any further changes as we count down to Saturday November 4th. Should there be any diversions to either of the courses we will inform you with an updated course map, after the usual Government safety inspection of the course on 6th October.
Team Captains, please share this message with your team members.

Upwards & Onwards!
The Macau Eco TrailHiker Team
