Mt. Fuji Marathon
The race

The fourth Mt. Fuji Marathon will be held on November 29th (Sunday) at Fujikawaguchiko-machi, Yamanashi Prefecture. The snow-capped peak of Mt. Fuji comes in and out of view multiple times along the course. In addition to the mountain views, runners can also enjoy the beautiful autumn leaves around Kawaguchi-ko Lake and Sai-ko Lake. With its reputation as the world’s most beautiful course, the marathon has experienced a burst of overseas participants.

This year the marathon also features the launch of its 10km charity fun run, organized in response to requests from people who want to run while enjoying views of Mt. Fuji, but feel unable to participate in the full marathon. A portion of the participation fees will be donated to Mt. Fuji cleanup activities. First-time runners will feel comfortable taking part in the fun run.
