About the Race

Welcome to Susaki City! Escape the busy city life and join us for an unique experience to swim in one of the calmest bays in Japan! Due to its landlocked harbor, the waters are not affected by waves, which makes it a perfect venue to achieve a PR! You won't regret being surrounded by nature and the breathtaking mountain views. After the race, go back in time and visit old traditional soy sauce and rice shops. Don't forget about the fresh bonito fish, nabeyaki ramen, and hot springs!
