About the Event

Treat yourself to some of Nagano's most spectacular views! Come on out to Sugadaira, a sleepy village tucked away in the mountainous regions of the Japan Alps, and run the race of a lifetime! Enjoy stunning landscapes as you traverse mountains, scramble down the ski slopes, and run above the clouds (yes, the air gets thin)! More than 90% is on trail and runners will encounter a broad range of terrain including gravel, silt, asphalt, large rocks, and even stairs. Most of the trail is moderately technical - both the climbs and descents are steep with unsteady footing.

Set at an elevation of approximately 1,100 meters, Sugadaira is home to several ski courses and a popular place for winter sports enthusiasts. Those seeking a reprieve from the concrete jungles of the city can bask in the cool breezes of early summer in Sugadaira - come on out and experience it for yourself!

Note: Cut off times are generous but beginners may find the 23KM and 49KM overwhelming. Those with the weekend free will definitely want to challenge the Sanada Vertical 100 on Saturday afternoon! To learn more, read the 2018 race report
