*BRING A HEADLAMP if you plan to do Oyama.
**Please don't make this your first long trail run, or your first trail run with over 2,000 m of elevation gain. It's been a long summer already, and we aim to fly! Check out 'Run Baby Run' and 'Tokyo Trail Running' if you need to test yourself beforehand. I may ask for a reference!

You run at your own risk.

Please come with adequate water supply (at least 1-1.5 L, food, rain jacket, extra layers, headlamp, etc.

Change of underwear and socks for after the run, optional.

Details:
ARRIVE at JR Yaga Station by 7:37 a.m., or you're on your own. The bus leaves at 7:41. There's an earlier train ARRIVING from Tokyo/Yokohama area at 7:04. Better to aim for that one, and miss it, than to aim for 7:37, and miss that one.
