It's May!

​The weather is warming up in Tokyo, there are more and more people out on the trails especially here at our local Mount Takao. A random fact about Mount Takao is that over 2.5 million people hike up this mountain every year, and on a clear day Mount Fuji is visible.

May starts with Golden Week! We are just off the high vibes of Mt Fuji 100 and Ultra Trail Drakensburg and now we get into May we are looking forward to the Golden Race Week run across Japan, 川の道(River Road Foot race) from Tokyo to Niigata running across the width of Japan. In South Africa a lot of the running community is focused on Comrades training, so those big long runs are a priority.
