MARCH COEDO OEDO 230KM, 200KM, 113KM, & 91KM

MAY SAINOKUNI 100 Mile & 100KM

ALTRA JAPAN set-up a try-on event with both the TIMP and SUPERIOR 3.5 available for try out.

Many people were able to try-on ALTRA shoes for the first time and gave many good reviews. The 50KM race started out on a warm humid morning at 7:30AM.

The course starts out on the road before heading into the beautiful trails in Saitama.

Below is a course profile of both the 50KM & 30KM.

As you can see, the first section has a large climb to almost 900M.Despite it being warm an humid, the runners seemed to be having heaps of fun on the trails!

This race is environmentally friendly and implements a “my cup” policy where  participants each bring their own cup to reduce the amount of waste from the race.

It was very fun watching both the 30KM and 50KM finishers come in to the finish line. There was several customers from STRIDE LAB who participated in the race. Nice job!

There was also a large showing from the TOKYO TRAIL RUNNING club and they all made it to the finish line successfully.

Fun, goofy group of foreigners and locals exploring trails around TOKYO.

The cut-off time for the races are pretty lenient leading to a high finish rate of:
50KM-90.3%
30KM- 97.6%

All of the participants received DRYMAX socks as a gift from the race. Nothing better than DRYMAX socks with your ALTRA shoes!Participants also enjoyed being able to hop in the hotel hotspring right next to the finish.

Thanks to the race directors for putting on an awesome race and great job participants!!

This race even has an information page in ENGLISH! Feel free to check it out!

SUNDAY JUNE 10th, 2018
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.

The race is directed by YUMI MATSUI and works with YAMANASHI trail running shops SUNDAY and MICHIGAMASSUGU

Here are the number breakdown of participants for each race:
38km-250 people
24km- 500 people

Below is the course profile with the long indicated in green.The long course has a fair bit of climbing while the shorter course has a more mild course profile.

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.

After the race, staff went out to Yamanashi’s famous Houto Udon restaurant. If you make it Yamanashi, it is a must-try!!!

Feel free to check out the website and register for next year!
