Your Experience

A 250km race split into 5 stages of isolated mountain wilderness, alpine lakes and wildlife.

Runners should expect a range of temperatures.  There may be periods running in darkness, following a marked route by head torch, under skies free of light pollution and filled with stars.

As a self-sufficient race you are responsible for carrying your entire kit, including food, safety equipment and a minimum of 2 litres of water which can be re-filled at checkpoints along the stages.  You’ll need some specialist gear to take on the isolated mountains of Japan.
