Would you run through 415 kilometres of treacherous trail just for the sake of self-satisfaction?
Thirty men decided to race across the Japanese Alps from the Sea of Japan to the Pacific Ocean in August 2018, and their entire journey was documented into the most thrilling series ever.
There were no prizes offered for coming in first place except for bragging rights, and this group is made out of amateurs too!
As if going through the mountains wasn’t arduous enough, they also had to brave torrential storms throughout. The eight days spent fighting to reach the finish line was plagued with fatigue.
There were so many other options they could have went with instead of this particular tenacious one, and yet, for the sake of taking up a challenge, the men chose the Japanese Alps.
With very little rest, they also faced high risks of injuring themselves as the tough trail involved soft earth, uneven grounds, and steep slopes, whereby a slight lack of focus could have sent them tumbling to their end.
