First Snow of the Season in Sapporo

cyclingroad1128My regular jogging course, Shiroishi Cycling Road, was finally covered with snow this morning. I will probably have to wait for the next spring to run on the road.

Sapporo, however, has some excellent indoor running courses so that runners like me wouldn’t get choked during winters.

One of them is Sapporo Dorm, the home ground for Nippon Ham Fighters, a Major League Baseball team in Japan.

Sapporo Dorm RunningThe 716m running course in the Sapporo Dome is arranged behind the top of the stand, and so it’s available only when there’s no event in the field.

I should also add that the Dome does have a well equipped training gym, which is regularly open for public.

You will find their schedule on their website.
