Hakuba Trails offers a scenic and spicy 53 km course with 2800 metres of elevation gain (in 2017). The popular race starts and finishes in a big ski resort and takes place in the mountains close to Nagano. Several rivers need to be crossed as well. About 1700 runners are expected to take part in the event that also offers three shorter distances to cater for the whole family. The first start is at 7:00 a.m. and the COT for the 53km is 10 hours, which does imply participants need to move on during the race.
International runners will be able to attach a five/six-day running camp around Tokyo and Mount Fuji to their trip. More details coming soon.
