Full course cut-off 8 hours.
15km - 4 hours (12:00PM at Ngong Ping CP1) If arrive after given DNF for race and can either follow route thru Tei Tong Tsai down to Tung Chung, but course marking will be removed as sweepers will start removing ribbons so you will have to make your own way to Tung Chung and suggest bringing the course map printed out if you believe you might not make the cut-off.
