Spending his life in Hong Kong, trail runner Ben Lee knows that clear days are hard to come by. That's why this film, Why I Run, took over a year to produce. But, persistence paid off: those days that are smog free showcase an incredible landscape. Over 40 percent of Hong Kong is protected in nature reserves, so get outside the beautiful skyline next time you're there.
