About the Race

The grand finale of the six-part Tokyo Trail Run series, the Tokyo Hachimine Mountain Trail is the longest and gnarliest yet! With over 30KM and 1,200 meters of elevation gain, this is not for the faint of heart!

Its namesake celebrates the eight (hachi) different mountains you’ll traverse – the course will take you on trails across Shidoyama, Daigomaru, Mount Jinba, Doshoyama, Kagenobuyama, Kobotokeshiroyama, Mount Obora, and Mount Kusato.

Difficulty: 5 stars (upper advanced)
・Athletes will start at Yuyake Fureai Park and finish at Ochiai Park, a short walk from Takao Sanguchi station. Personal items dropped off at the start line will be delivered to the finish line for no extra charge.

30KM (2019)View course map

30KM aid stations: 3 (distances not provided)

30KM elevation profile: +1,265m or +4,150 ft

View 2019 elevation profile

Please note that the course map and advertised distance may not align perfectly. According to the race organizers, this is due to the fact that the area does not always ping well using GPS or GLONASS. Additionally, the course map calculates distance between several geographical coordinates that do not account for irregularities in the surface of the route nor changes in elevation relative to the idealized surface.

Should you find a discrepancy between the advertised distance and the map, you may reasonably expect to run a maximum of the distance advertised but may also find that the distance actually covered more closely resembles that of the course map provided.
