Course Details

Niseko Gravel Spring Ride is back for the 3rd time, and we are expanding our event this year. Not only that we have two ride events, 60 and 100 km with unintroduced routes in our gravel course before, we are also adding a time trial area for the first time in 2024!

We are adding a time trial area for the 100km course participants for the first time, and this is a great opportunity for you to run the course with your friends, challenge your personal records or both. Please don’t forget, we are also preparing food and snacks at aid stations where you can enjoy the seasonal flavors of Niseko.

Important Notes
  • The Kawakami gravel (only on the long course) and the Shinyo gravel (on both the long and short courses) are roads within restricted-access forest areas – we have secured special access for this event. Entry outside of this event is strictly prohibited.
  • Gravel sections in the spring event are more rough compared to the autumn event. Please take this into consideration when selecting your tires and your repair kit (backup tubes and tools).
  • Please bring your own bear bell.
  • The course may change due to snowmelt or other environmental conditions. Please be aware of this in advance.
