Obihiro no Mori Aquathlon

The Obihiro no Mori Aquathlon

The Obihiro no Mori Aquathlon is on May 17. Apply by April 17. See the newspaper clipping for more details or ask your questions here. It is a fun event if you can get your swim training in. The pool where I live doesn't usually open until the day after the Aquathlon. The organizers keep it simple and fun and there is a chance to run the course the day before.

This event is the first in the Hokkaido Triathlon Circuit series.

1500 m swim, 12.7 km run

It seems to me that the Kamada Bicycle Shop is where you can get more information and an application form.  You can find them on Route 38 in Obihiro. Here is their website, which isn't updated very often.  
And you can find them here:

I contacted the Kamada bike shop and they sent me an application form. You can download it here:
