    Purple represents the long history of the ultra-marathons. The very first ultra-marathon was held in 490 B.C., and continues thriving now, after 2,500 years.

    Green stands for nature. Ultra-running is part of our environment. Not only do we aim to unite with our environment, but also so help it.

    White symbolizes the purity of ultra-running. The purpose of ultra-running is neither winning nor gaining advantages, but simply aim for self-actualized.


    Our logo symbolizes a runner throwing his/her hands up with accomplishment while crossing the finish line. We value and respect our runners, and we are here to serve them. Our association was established by runners who worked hard to bring a safe and utmost life challenging experience to all ultra-running lovers.
