Running in Tokyo/Japan - Marathon/Clubs/Track Races


May 2008 Blog Posts (9)


3 weeks ago, I decided that I was going to run my own personal half-marathon. Whoops.

It seems that something on the top of my foot went "pop" while I was at the 12KM mark (just crossing the bridge at Futako-Tamagawa). I somehow made it home to Ikegami but at a severely hampered pace (6:00/KM). I took a week off and things felt good. I went running again and-"ta-dah"-the pain is back. It doesn't hurt if I run with my shoe on loosely but the minute I really strap the right shoe… Continue

Oxfam Japan Trailwalker 100Km

The gun went off at 09:00 on 16May but we knew this would have been a long journey before reaching the finish line and an unusual race. In fact it does not really fit the terms of "race" as there is no individual time because each Team of 4 participants has to register together at each of the 8 checkpoints.

It took our Team 23 hours and 25 minutes to complete the 100Km with the satisfaction to finish within 24 hours and placing 8th over about 220 Teams.

The Trailwalker… Continue

Kintaro Marathon/Kanagawa (10/15k)

In this charming little countryside event not far from Shin-Matsuda Station, they give certificates or trophies to the first eight of each age-group which was a big advantage for the Namban Ladies. 18 runners in the women's 20's versus 170 in the men's 40's in the 15k. But I had been in bed until the day before the race, trying to get over a bad cold, so my 1:00:03 finish was more than I hoped for.

Rie won the women's 10k (over-all!!) in 42:10,… Continue

Mississauga 5km race, May 10, 2008

I arrived back in Canada late Thursday, and I thought what better way to shock my body than to run a 5km race. Most major cities in Canada have some sort of "marathon weekend", and this weekend was the Mississauga Marathon. 5km and 10km races were held Saturday evening, and 1/2 marathon and marathon events went off on Sunday morning. Total participation for this race weekend was ~10,000. (The 5km race had 1005 participants).

The 5km course was totally flat. The first 2km was road… Continue

Malcolm Phillis 5 Km Memorial Run 2008 - 2008/5/10

Just completed the 5 Km race in 27 mins+ in the warm and humid afternoon today.

I felt happy to see so many hkrunners.com's members such as Snail, LAM Wah, Connie and others. I was very happy to see my ex-coach CHUNG YH before and after the race.

Another nice race organized by…

Saku 10k (Nagano)

While most Namban stayed in Tokyo to run Inagi or Tell, we risked a longer trip to Nagano to run the 10k in Saku. A nice place, friendly people, but the heat and probably the altitude (700m) slowed me down to a 40:33 for 10k.

I have to complain about one thing: An Ojisan was conducting a call just before the start, he realised that he was not going to get through his numbers - the 40's were higher numbers, so I was still waiting - so he ran to the starting line to tell another Ojisan to… Continue

Oxfam Trailwalker Japan 100K. We need your donation!

My Company has entered 5 Teams into the 100K Oxfam Trailwalker Japan and I am in one of the Teams.

100K it is not an easy distance and not a distance that normally we would challenge.

Having done part of the Trailwalker course as training we already know that this 100K will not be easy. On top of the distance there are the terrain and the elevation that will make the challenge difficult.

Nevertheless our Team knows there is a just cause to go for it. The physical effort is… Continue

Kamogawa Marathon/Kyoto

Five Nambaners were the core group of the volunteers organising the first Kamogawa Marathon (10k).

Compared to the Tengu Trails in Takao which I started four years ago, much more money went to the NPO which was supposed to benefit from the race, a great success.

Thanks a lot to Chika, Hitomi, Mutsumi and Gerard!

Some results:

Over-all-winner: 33:32

40's: 35:35

50's: 36:31

60's: 42:15

Women:… Continue
