About the Event

KFC Triathlon Club invites you to join the 4th Annual Akagi Forest Trail Race and take refuge from the heat in the heart of the mountains! Starting at the Akagi Rinkan Community Center located in the middle of Mount Akagi (about 800 meters above sea level), you'll climb to approximately 1,000 meters above sea level before reaching the summit of Mount Ōmine.

More cross country running than hardcore trail running, runners will enjoy spectacular views of the vast Akagi forest throughout the course. Runners can opt to complete one loop on the course to clock in roughly 15KM, or to run the same course in reverse for a total of about 30KM.

Out here, the summer heat is less brutal - enjoy the refreshing and cool breezes as you race your way to finish the Akagi Forest Trail Race!

Difficulty: 15KM (2 stars/ intermediate), 30KM (4 stars/ advanced)
