The ULTRA-TRAIL Mt. FUJI
The ULTRA-TRAIL Mt.FUJI is an unprecedented event that aims to communicate the importance of challenging the human spirit through the outdoor sport of trail running and to provide the oppotunity for people to enjoy and discover the natural beauty and culture of the Mt.Fuji region. The course we’ve prepared connects mountain trails, local footpaths, and forest roads, so that participants can run and walk, right around the perimeter of Mt.Fuji while enjoing 360 degree views of the majestic mountain.
