Held in the spectacular Japanese countryside the Mountain Marathon format has clearly found a second home and has been welcomed by all the competitors and organisers. It is fantastic to see the event developing it’s own OMM community and replicating the values held with the Original Mountain Marathon. We look forward to another exciting course  from the OMM Japan event team led by Hideyuki Komine.
