The most technical Skyrace ever organized in Japan! A very authentic course including snow ridges on most of the track which reach the top of Mt. Awagatake.
There is no vegetation at the early spring and the view is the best at this time of year.
As the locals say:
you can climb anywhere if you can climb Awagatake!
When does it take place?
- April – please check the race website for this year’s exact dates.
Where does the race start?
