RACE REGISTRATION

 

 

Registration for the Shinetsu 2018 begins on Sunday, June 10, 2018 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!
