The grand finale of the six-part Tokyo Trail Run series, the Tokyo Hachimine Mountain Trail is the longest and gnarliest yet! With 40KM and over 1,600 meters of cumulative elevation gain, this is not for the faint of heart.
Its namesake celebrates the eight (hachi) different mountains you'll traverse - the course will take you on trails across Shidoyama, Daigomaru, Mount Jinba, Doshoyama, Kagenobuyama, Kobotokeshiroyama, Mount Obora, and Mount Kusato.

|Samurai assist||Those registering through Samurai Sports will pick up their race packets (includes race bib and timing chip) on the day of the event. This service is offered because postal mailing of race packets works well domestically, but is less reliable and timely for international registrants and those registering with FPO/APO addresses.|

|Course Map||Course Map (Japanese)
Please note that the course map and advertised distance may not align perfectly. According to the race organizers, this is due to the fact that the area does not always ping well using GPS or GLONASS. Additionally, the course map calculates distance between several geographical coordinates that do not account for irregularities in the surface of the route nor changes in elevation relative to the idealized surface.
Should you find a discrepancy between the advertised distance and the map, you may reasonably expect to run a maximum of the distance advertised but may also find that the distance actually covered more closely resembles that of the course map provided.
