Welcome to the site! Thank you for joining this website, and I hope to see you at a training-run or a race soon. We try our best to assist foreign runners to navigate to difficulties of the Japanese running bureaucracy, and fortunately, have a lot of Japanese members who can help with that. I'm looking forward to seeing your blog-posts and other running-related content on this website! And a little hint: Pop out the chat-box when you are on the site, then it is much easier to see when somebody is talking to you. Cheers, Juergen (website-creator)
P.S.: For runs in the Tokyo downtown area, please join the group: WIRED<>FIT Running Team.
