runners at the start of the race


Running: half, 10k

Run from the Northern most point of Hokkaido into Memuro.

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

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

Various prizes given for other things and a lucky drawing during the closing ceremony. Drinks and soup and some food after the race (rice balls, candy etc). 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.
