Today, it's the start of first Ultra Trail Mount Fuji (UTMF) race in Japan. There's two Malaysians are joining UTMF, which are Shine Teh (bib no. 163) and Seow Kong Ng (bib no. 141)
The time limits for the 156km ultra trail around Mount Fuji are 48 hours ! 

UTMF is the very first sister race to the world's top trail race, the ULTRA-TRAIL DU MONT-BLANC (UTMB) 

There's about  933 male ultra runners and 180 female ultra runners !

Runners were getting ready! 

The very first ever UTMF held in Japan were flagged off at 3:00pm (Japan local time)
All the best to our two Malaysians running the Ultra Trail Mt. Fuji!
