MOUNT FUJI MARATHON
It’s a long way to go for a run but it’s well worth it. This is the 70th outing for this tough multiterrain race that takes you round a series of lakes in the foothills of Japan’s highest mountain (and, technically, a volcano). Fuji itself always remains in view, watching over you as you tackle 3,000m of ascent. The race also involves a series of checkpoints, each with a cutoff point. The overall time limit is six hours.
