The Wall in the middle of the Cold Half and Clean Half Extreme Marathon Swim courses in Hong Kong
noun - The Wall is an 800m section of rock wall on the Stanley Peninsula on Hong Kong Island where open water swimmers can virtually ride the waves downwind as they swim. It is located in the courses of both the Clean Half and the Cold Half, two 15 km marathon swims in Hong Kong. It is one of the few body surfing sections found in an open water swim race in Asia.

The Clean Half Extreme Marathon Swim includes a solo race and a relay competition of 14.5 km in Hong Kong. It is one of the world's most creative marathon swimming competitions and is ranked among the Top 50 Open Water Swims In Asia. Doug Woodring, its race director, created the concept of a Carbon-neutral Relay.
