Run from the Northern most point of Hokkaido into Memuro.

This is a race to raise awareness of the Northern Territories problem.

Past participation prizes include T-shirts, towels and baseball caps.

Various prizes given for other things in the closing ceremony. Drink and soup and some food after the race. See the ocean as you run.

I don't have time to do this justice, but I really enjoy this race.  The views of the ocean are great and the soup at the end is delicious.  We always go a day early and enjoy a crab dinner the night before the race.
