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, the 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
ULTRA-TRAIL Mt. FUJI 2015
September 25-27, 2015 (Yamanashi & Shizuoka Prefectures)
The UTMF is one of Japan's premier ultra-trail running races around Mt. Fuji. There are two races - the UTMF (168km) & STY (77km) and we'll be providing racer support packages again this year for both!
2015 SHINETSU TRAIL 110km
September 21-23, 2015 (Nagano & Niigata Prefectures)
The Shinetsu Five Mountains Trail 110km will be taking place from Sep 21 - 22, 2015 this year. It's one of the most popular ultra-trail running races in Japan that sells out quikcly. Avid will be managing their oversea racer registrations and will also be providing racer accommodation & support packages.
