About the Event

Race organizers KFC Triathlon Club are branching into Nagano’s trail run haven with the inaugural Shinshu Tenku Trail Race! Come out and play outdoors, run the trails, and relax in the crisp autumn climate!

Despite its name, the Shinshu Tenku Trail Race combines both trail and road – perfect for those seeking the best of both worlds. Run along the Hijiriyama Trail while enjoying superb views of the mountains, vineyards, and fall foliage. Start and finish at the Schoengarten Omi where you’ll be greeted by an authentic Swiss Alps alphorn upon your return, treated to a smorgasbord of food at the lunch buffet, and rejuvenated at the onsen and rotenburo on-site!

Known primarily for its production of knitted goods and apricot production, Chikuma is located just south of Nagano city and plays host to the very first edition of the Shinshu Tenku Trail Race.

The best of both worlds! The Shinshu Tenku Trail Race course includes both trail and road – with plenty of elevation to conquer.
Strike a pose! KFC Triathlon Club (the race organizers) provide several hundred race photos available for download – free of charge.
Free food! A lunch buffet will be provided for all participants following the race.
Post-race rejuvenation! Your race entry includes free entry to the onsen and rotenburo (outdoor onsen). Please note that unless covered, participants with tattoos may not be permitted to enter the onsen facilities.
