MOUNT FUJI MARATHON

Runner's World (UK) - - Best Races 2017 -

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.

NEXT RACE July 28, fu­ji­moun­tain­race.jp
