The Izu Trail Journey, often referred to as "ITJ", is one of Japan's premier trail races along a stunning 72 km course taking you from the edge of the ocean up and across the mountains of Izu Peninsula. The expansive vistas of the Pacific Ocean below and the HUGE views of the majestic snow-topped Mt. Fuji you'll encounter while running along the trail are awesome and will absolutely blow you away!

This extremely popular race fills up within hours in Japan but a limited number of race slots have been made available for international participants coming from other countries. Space is very limited so make sure to register soon!


Avid Adventures Japan has partnered with the Izu Trail Journey to provide a way for racers coming from outside of Japan to participate in this amazing race. As the race does not have an English website, we've provided a translation of all the information you'll need to sign up for the race. The English race registration can also be accessed from this website.


To make the logistics of getting to and from the race easier you can also book transportation to/from Tokyo to the race venue as well as accommodations from this website.
