[UTMF] ULTRA-TRAIL Mt. Fuji, the 1st 100 mile trail race in Japan

February 2,  steering committee  of UTMF, ULTRA-TRAIL Mt. Fuji, had press meeting, and announced the very 1st 100 miler trail in Japan will start coming May. Yes, this is long rumored 100 mile trail race around Fuji, that Kaburaki-san, leading Japanese trail runner and 3rd place winner of UTMB 2009, had been working hard.

As one of the "students" (that's what he said to Seb Chaigneau in Chamonix last summer!) of Kaburaki-san's trail sessions, I would like to update info this awaited UTMF as frequently as possible in English. I would like to promote this race to all trail running communities in the world, and hope to see more runners from foreign countries in May.
