Nic Tinworth, Hong Kong trail community legend, dies aged 44.

This is sad news. Nic and I were probably distantly related, as there aren’t an awful lot of Tinworths in the world. He was one of the first other Tinworths I encountered on social media, and we end up chatting occasionally as a result.

Best wishes to his family at a difficult time:

“I’ve been thinking a lot about legacy,” he said when I last saw him in January. “What is legacy? My legacy is the amount I’ve raised for charity. Through RaceBase, we’ve raised HK$1.5 million. No matter when I’m gone, I’ve still raised that amount. When my daughter grows up, she’ll know her dad raised $1.5 million for charity.”
