Taipei, July 26 (CNA) As part of the 2018 Sun Moon Lake Cycling, Music & Fireworks Festival, the lake's administration is inviting tourists to a series of swimming, cycling, jogging, and hiking events in the neighboring mountains.

Su Han-chang (蘇翰章), the secretary of the lake's administration, said that "Sun Moon Lake Challenge Breakthrough" is aimed at promoting Sun Moon Lake sports tourism by hosting four major sporting events. The first 800 participants who complete any three of the four events will receive medals and certificates.

The Challenge Breakthrough has already begun on July 1 and will end on Nov. 20. Except for the 36th Annual Sun Moon Lake Swimming Carnival scheduled for Sept. 15-16, participants can finish other sporting events on their own and keep records on the official app.

The other events are "Cycling Around the Lake," "Running Around the Lake" and "Summiting Minor Peak" of Mt. Maolan or Mt. Houjian of Toushe.
