Shiga Kogen climbing mountain trail run -How do I enter?

Hi Blair 
I would like to enter the Shiga Kogen climbing mountain trail run held on the 7 July 2018 … but I cannot become a member of runnet due to not having a Japanese telephone number.  

Apparently this run has spectacular scenery … I only want to do the 14.8 km on the July 7, 2018, as the marathon is a little too much for me.

Is there a way that tourists can enter?

Today I ran the Rockin’ Bear run at Mount Kurohime, which was beautiful.  To enter this run I contacted the organisers directly – North Shinano Trail Freaks (KTF) – who organised it so I could enter and pay on the day … & it was well worth it : )

I have written to the Shiga Kogen climbing mountain trail secretariat, but alas, have not been able to get a response. 

Could you guide me as to an alternate route to enter this trail run.

Thank you kindly

Hi Michael,

I’ll get in contact with the organizers to see if they can enter you into the event. The deadline for entry was last week so I’m not sure what their response will be. I’ll reply again once I find out.
