Kobo Daishi 10 K Trail Race (and 3 K Walk)

This trail run takes place on the Shiraishi Pilgrimage route, a 400-year-old Buddhist path. The trail passes through bamboo forests, past stone deities, and over ridges with panaoramic views of the Seto Inland Sea. The 10 K race starts at 11:00 a.m. with a two-hour time limit. This year we're also opening the route to walkers, who will do a 3-kilometer route and will start just after the runners, with the same two-hour time limit. The walking route is great for families or groups of friends who want to enjoy this historic walk.


The race is sponsored by Moooo! Bar and costs ¥4200 for runners (includes insurance) and 1,500 yen for walkers (no insurance). 


All proceeds go toward maintaining this ancient historic trail.
