This race explores the trails encircling Mt. Fuji, spanning 100 miles (approximately 160 kilometers), connecting the rich culture and communities intertwined with these paths and their surroundings. By organizing the race that continues day and night, without breaks for sleep or rest, we highlight the significance of self-challenge and showcase the allure of trail running as a sport. Additionally, we aim to share the rich culture and unmatched natural beauty of Mt. Fuji, a valuable Japanese treasure, with the world and future generations.
- The Mt.Fuji100 is not about winning or competing against others. Its ultimate goal is to help runners rediscover their physical and mental capabilities through the challenging 100-mile trail journey and expand their possibilities.
- RESPECT FOR NATURE
- Japan’s culture has always been deeply interconnected with nature. However, in recent times, people have started to lose sight of this important connection. In this outdoor sport of trail running race, our mission is to help every participant embrace our deep bond with nature and to foster a genuine spirit of love and respect for it.
- SHARING THE TRAILS
- These trails have been created over many years by the people who live, work and enjoy the mountains. We respect the efforts of our predecessors and strive to communicate the value of these beautiful trails, making their significance known to everyone who uses them. Furthermore, we aim to share the excitement and enjoyment of these trails with people all around the world.
