Oxfam Trailwalker 100km 12000mtr Event

Ran / jogged / walked this event starting in Odawara and finishing some time later at Lake Yamanakoko.

Weather was kind, just a blustery shower around 3am Saturday.

Terrain was challenging - particularly the last hill at 95kms which was approached with a furrowed brow and the odd swear word !!!!

My team finished in 4th with an overall time of 20hrs 55 mins.

Highly recommended event, if you want a really hard challenge !!!

50K in Hino City on May 10th, 2009

Short summary : it was too hot to really run. I made it to the finish within the cutoff time of 8:00.

The 50K was well organized, very low key, 120 participants, more organizers, very very hot day along the Tama river.

The loop has three out-and-back "spurs". The upper stream spur is between the 1st K and 9K with a turn at 5K, then we had the horse spur, from 16K to 22K with a turn at 19K at the pony farm, and then the "rice curry" spur, from 22K to 44K with a turn at… Continue

Fuji Susono Half - Juergen

I ran a pretty good race, eventhough the time doesn't show it. Placed top-ten, target achieved. Just suffered a bit from the hills and heat, but that had to be expected.

Very positive to note my fast recovery, feel good today, only normal fatigue, no injuries. Also, got over the hard practice without catching a cold, many thanks to Fabrizio for the Echinacea!

The week-end trip was great, it seems everybody had a lot of fun. Pic is in front… Continue

Tell 10k/5k Imperial Palace - Tokyo

Great weather and great prices made sure the turn-out for this race was as expected by the organizers. It's for a good cause, the Tokyo English Lifeline (TELL), and one participant actually managed 130000Yen in donations! Traditionally, many Namban members place in this race, and the Ladies' 10k was won by Yuri Kambara in 38:54. Jason Lawrence prevailed in the Men's 5k in a course record of 15;27.

The winner… Continue
