After Ultra Trail Mount Fuji (April 26, 2013 - April 28, 2013 - 3 days), we talked with our friends, female winner Krissy Moehl and second place Julien Chorier.
Here’s what they had to say about this great new race TOJ: What are the main difficulties of this Japanese race when you are a foreigner? Krissy Moehl: Whether you are a foreigner or a local, the UTMF poses plenty of challenges. The course boasts somewhere around 28,000 ft of elevation gain and the terrain in Japan makes each of those climbs and descents very present and in your face. There were long sections of runnable dirt roads as well that wear you out and significant sections of intense climbing and descending that do a great job of punishing your quads.
