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


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, we know Rie can go faster, but this is not the season for PB's, great effort!
Mutsumi placed 3rd in the 15k, see her report.
Tamami took 7th in the women's 40's, again getting under 50min, watch out for her running much faster times in the fall!
Jon coached her and ran the same time.
I am not exactly sure what time Adam ran in the 10k, I think he said 43:20.
I liked this race and would recommend it to everybody, let's go again next year.

Unfortunately, we didn't see her after the beer-event. Wonder how much she drank!

Yes this was a great day out and well worth a visit next year when we will all run faster.
It was very nice to meet Mutsumi-san and also to talk running with Juergen. Rie-san was last seen disappearing into the beer hall for the cheap beer available!
