April 2 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm| ¥5 - ¥2000
This spring road race on Miyajima pretty much duplicates the long-running autumn “Miyajima Cross Country” organised by the Hiroshima Seniors Running club. There are two distances, a 15km and a 5km.
The 15km is on the same course as the autumn event, starting from in front of Miyajima Junior High School and runs out along the coast in the opposite direction to Itsukushima Shrine, past Tsusumigaura Beach Park, up and then down a steep winding 1km hill and then another couple of kilometers before turning around and doing the same thing in reverse. It is a challenging course and attention to pacing is highly recommended, but it’s a good opportunity to see the little visited “other side” of Miyajima.
15km starts at 10:30 and has a time limit of 2 hours 30 minutes (Cut off point 12.5km 12:20)
5km starts at 10:40 and has a time limit of 2 hours 20 minutes (Cut off point 2.5km 10:40)
- 15km ¥4000
- 5km ¥2000
