Join Ultra Trail Mt Fuji
Japan’s Mt. Fuji is an active volcano about 100 kilometers southwest of Tokyo. Commonly called “Fuji-san,” it’s the country’s tallest peak, at 3,776 meters. A pilgrimage site for centuries, it’s considered one of Japan’s 3 sacred mountains, and summit hikes remain a popular activity. Its iconic profile is the subject of numerous works of art.
The Ultra-Trail Mt. Fuji is a race around Mt. Fuji and is an incredible 160 km journey. It 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 opportunity for people to enjoy and discover the natural beauty and culture of the Mt.Fuji region. The course connects mountain trails, local footpaths, and forest roads, so that participants can run and walk, right around the perimeter of Mt.Fuji while enjoying 360 degree views of the majestic mountain.
Ultra Trail Mt Fuji is a 100-mile ultra trail race which sends runners orbiting around the spiritually significant and Japan’s highest peak, Mt Fuji. It is the sister race to Ultra Trail Mt Blanc, and as such the race attempts to replicate as many of the features of UTMB. The UTMF takes racers over mainly off-road terrain, including the challenging Tenshi Sanchi Mountain Range and Makuiwa, which at 1,800 metres elevation is the highest point of the race. The course has a total elevation gain of 9,164 metres. .
