Who is Running?

Alyn Watkins

Hello all, I’m Alyn and the instigator of this idea! This is my 5th Moontrekker and I’m excited we’ve got a Garage Society Team of friends to train together and raise funds and awareness to support RefuGeek in giving refugees an opportunity to excel as coders!

James Bernardo

Hi I’m James, the youngest member of this intrepid group of Garagers at a sprightly 31. I’ve intended to tackle Moontrekker ever since moving to HK three years ago but the planets failed to align. I’m excited to have this opportunity to launch myself over Lantau alongside fellow Garagers, whilst raising awareness and funds to support the great work of RefuGeek in opening up education for all.

Paul Leishman

I’m Paul, and I am equal parts excited and terrified to be tackling Moontrekker this year! Excited to be contributing in a small way to a great cause in RefuGeek; terrified by how challenging I’m expecting the trek to be!

Will Tidwell

Hi I’m Will and a newbie to Hong Kong. I jumped on the chance to participate in Moontrekker before really thinking it through… If Paul is equal parts excited and terrified, I am fully terrified. Never done anything like this before but ready for the challenge and the chance to support RefuGeek’s amazing work.
