About the National Park lands:

We are excited to announce that, with the support of the Shiribeshi Promotion Bureau, the gates of the Shikotsu-Toya National Park will be opened to the public for the first time, allowing participants to ride through the gravel roads at the foot of Mount Yotei.
This area is normally closed to the public, and only participants with visible race numbers are allowed to enter. Entering this area outside of the event is strictly prohibited.
We hope to receive continued access to these and other incredible gravel roads in future events, and we must maintain a good relationship with the authorities in order to do so. We thank you for your cooperation.
