Get away from the skyscrapers and explore the nature side of Tokyo! You'll be surrounded by beautiful scenery and embraced by dazzling shades of greenery throughout the trail. The 16KM course consists of tough, challenging climbs - it's no walk in the park but we promise it'll be worth it.
Ease your achey feet at the foot bath after the race or swing by the "Ume no Yu" day spa located in front of JR Kabe Station for peak post-race relaxation.

|Course Map||Refer to this course map.
*2019 course subject to change
Refer to a participant's 2018 Nariki Forest Trail Race Relive map.
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.
