Registration for the Shinetsu 2017 begins on Sunday, June 11, 2017 at 21:00 JST (Japan Standard Time).


Race entries are accepted on a first come first serve basis and will be closed once all the spots are filled. Non-Japanese racers living outside of Japan (or temporarily living in Japan) can sign up for the race through the Avid Adventures website. 


Just to let you know....the Japanese entries usually sell out within minutes. This year we've had many international inquiries and we expect the international race slots to sell out quickly as well so please sign up quickly to avoid disappointment!



Here is what you'll need to enter on your race registration form:

  • First & last name
  • Date of birth
  • Gender
  • Team Name (optional)
  • Blood type (select from: A, B, AB, O or I don't know)
  • Nationality
  • Address
  • Contact telephone number (& mobile phone number) - with country code
  • Emergency contact information - a person the race can contact in case of an emergency (name, relationship with runner, phone number with country code)
  • Email address
  • T-shirt size
  • Racer qualifications (for 100 mile category only) for 2 trail races - name of race, race date, location, distance, finish time (hours:minutes:seconds), ranking, race website

You will also be asked if you'll be bringing a pacer. (Pacers are optional)

If you are, you will need to provide the same information as the racer (above).

If you don't have all your pacer's information, you can register for the race and sign up your pacer at a later date.


Race entry fees can be made by credit card through PayPal.

Note: You don't need a PayPal account to make the credit card payment but it might be easier if you sign up for a PayPal account beforehand to make things easier!


Please note

* No refunds are provided by the race once you've registered (for whatever reason). 

* Race bibs are non-transferable and race category may not be changed.
