Today some Namban Rengo runners made the trek to Odawara for the 10km race.
Mutsumi, Juergen, Daniel and myself.
It was a successful day with Daniel, Mutsumi and myself making road 10km pbs. Juergen running solidy as well and surviving a little run in with a local kuruma.
It was a well run event, a scenic out and back course with a river running down one side of the track and Mt Fuji visible to the naked eye on the other side of the track.
The weather was crisp and cool but the sun was warming as the morning continued.
The course was well marked with markers at each km point, 5km out and 5km back which is also handy for those chasing a pb as you get a good idea of how you are travelling and what you have to do for the second 5km when you hit the turn around point.
Several small winding spots and mini hills in the track but besides that very flat.
After the race we went and enjoyed some soba noodles and an onsen, then back to the Metropolis.
I recommend this day as a worthwhile event to participate in.
