Nayoro 10K : 2016

2016 Race #1
2016 10K #1
8th May 2016

Price : 2500 yen
Course : One out and back for the 10K. Up a hill. (Two for the HM. A grind!)


It was a sunny, but windy day for my first “race” of the year. I did the 10K. Going up on the way out, down on the way back. Fortunately we had a tail wind on the way up to the ski area. Just a gentle climb, but kinda tough at the beginning of the season. Crazy head wind on the way back down. One stretch was a bit ridiculous!

The 10K had drink stations at 2.5, 5 and 7.5K for the 10K. They also had pacers. First time to see them in a Hokkaido race.

Enjoyed this one. Would definitely like to run it again.
