The Hiroshima Osorakan Trail Race is a challenging course requiring runners to traverse the highest peaks of both Hiroshima and Shimane Prefectures. Intermediate to advanced athletes will find this race suitably difficult as they climb the equivalent of sea level to the summit of Mt. Fuji. Line up with some of the nation's hardiest trail runners and see where you stand!
Starting and finishing at the Osorakan Snow Park, the 65KM course involves completion of A Loop (27KM), B Loop (27.5KM), and C Loop (10KM) with a total ascent of almost 3,900 meters (about 12,800 feet). The 27KM course only requires completing A Loop. All three loops are an out and back with the base being Osorakan Snow Park.
IMPORTANT: The area is remote and both public transportation and lodging options are limited. Those interested in racing Osorakan should plan to sign up for the race bundle with local accommodation and transportation (between Hiroshima station) or drive their own vehicle/rental car. Additionally, this is not beginner-friendly - please be a responsible athlete and only register if you feel confident about your abilities, the distance, and race logistics (including before and after the race).
