Well, I missed the deadline for the Nosappu Misaki half marathon in Nemuro but I don't think I'll miss the deadline for this one.
The Shikaoi Trail Run will have its third running on Saturday November 3rd
The run starts and ends at the Nishikami Farm and takes you through a wild ride through forests, over wood chip trails, across several small rivers and through green pastures. The farm also has a cafe and furnace for cooking bread or pizza and they have strawberries. Loads and loads of strawberries that you can buy or pick yourself.
Place: Kanko Noen Nishikami in Shikaoi
Put on by the Shikaoi-cho Sogogata Chiiki Sports Club "Wakko".
