Upcomming Races in Hokkaido

Long time no see.  A few upcoming races in Hokkaido.

May 20, 38th Annual Lake Toya Marathon
5月20日 第38回洞爺湖マラソン2012

Entry starts March 1st.

Where: Toyako-cho

This flat course takes you around Lake Toya with views of Mt. Yotei and the smoking Mt. Usu. A beautiful course to run in the spring time with pink and white blossoming trees lining the course.

If you go up a day early you can camp lakeside and save some cash while enjoying what nature has to offer. We always do.


June 3rd,  32nd Chitose International Marathon
6月3日 第32回千歳JAL国際マラソン

Where: Chitose-shi

The relatively flat course is on wood-chipped trails and cycling paths and the road going around Lake Shikotsu.  A nice place to run.
