38km and 24km Trail Running Race
3 PEAKS YATSUGATAKE is a set of trail running races in Yamanashi Prefecture on the border of Nagano Prefecture. The YATSUGATAKE Mountain Range is a beautiful technical area of mountains that many hikers/trail runners from around Japan visit to soak in the beautiful views.3 PEAKS trail running races consists of a 38km race and a shorter 24km race.
Here are the number breakdown of participants for each race:
24km- 500 people
At 7AM, the began and the runners made their way from the start on the road to the fun trails ahead of them.ALTRA JAPAN was one of the sponsors of the race so they did a LONE PEAK 3.5 Try-On event at the start area and also sponsored the 3rd aid-station.It was fun to watch runners from both races come through the aid station on their way out and back as they journeyed through the YATSUGATAKE mountains.
ALTRA staff were there cheering the runners and directing them to the aid-station.
We were also happy to see a large number of runners and volunteers wearing ALTRA shoes!!!For this year’s race, the 3 PEAKS Race Staff decided to give custom made DRYMAX SOCKS to the participants and many of the runners wore them during the race!
It was also very cool to see STRIDE LAB customers doing so well during the race!
The STRIDE LAB members seemed to be in all in good condition!
After the last runners came through aid-station 3, we watched the final runners come through the finish line.
All of STRIDE LAB customers successfully finished their race and for 2 individuals it was their first trail-running race!
This year’s 3 PEAKS race was a great time and thankfully the forecasted bad weather held off.
