Scott Hawker, chilling in Beijing

Flashing his shorts at -3, Hoka OneOne Australia's Scott Hawker out for a training run in Beijing, on his way to the Hong Kong 100 later this month.

Just heard from Team Hoka’s Scotty Hawker, freshly back from turning his legs over in Beijing as he gets ready for the Hong Kong 100 later this month.

A little colder here (-3deg) than Australia!! Heading out for a run around the Forbidden City in Beijing.

Got so many smiles and laughs from locals cause I was wearing shorts. Guess that’s the kiwi in me.

Along with The North Face 100 here in Australia in May, Tarawera in New Zealand in March, and a swag of other spectacular ultra marathons throughout the year and around the globe, the HK100 is now part of the Ultra Trail World Tour and as such will see a fast lineup of internationals racing alongside Scott, including Dave Mackey, Claire Price, and Jez Bragg.

Good luck Scott! Great chance to mix it up with some of the best.
