Many trail running races in Japan are locally organized and race websites are often only available in Japanese. There are some world class trail races here in Japan though and Avid Adventures has been asked by various race organizers such as the Ultra-Trail Mt. FUJI, Izu Trail Journey and Shinetsu Five Mountains to help them introduce their race to a broader international audience.
Depending on the race, Avid will be managing some or all of the following:
- Overseas racer registration process
- Communications in English
- Racer Support Packages that include accommodations and transportation to/from the race
Here's our race lineup for 2014!
