Q&A
1. What should I do if I want to complete two courses of different distance on the same day, such as Section 1 and 2 of the Hong Kong Trail?

You need to register for the courses of both Section 1 and 2 of the Hong Kong Trail in the TRAILME app. After starting and completing Section 1, you must go over the start process again at the start point of Section 2 ().


2. If the mobile signal is unstable in the middle of the course, will it affect the result tracking?

Temporary signal instability will slightly affect the data upload, but will not affect the overall result tracking.

During the period when the mobile is off powered, no tracking record can be obtained. However, the records tracked before shutdown will be saved.


4. If I press "GIVE UP" in the middle of the hike, can I start my next hike again at where I gave up?

No. Participant should register for the course again and start the hike at the start point.

Please record your finish time with any proof and send to our email hike@greenpower.org.hk.
