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


Great results for our members on Cheung Chau

Today's hilly 10k on Cheung Chau island saw a Kenian sweep in both age-groups. runningintokyo's Francis Kemei easily won the senior division, but could not keep up with Thomas, a 24-year-old Kenian resident of Hong Kong who happens to be from Francis' hometown of Eldoret!

I was happy to come away with a second trophy for our team, placing 3rd in the senior division!

Times don't matter much on this course, as it is about 600m long according to my Garmin and extremely hilly, the winner ran about 36, Francis 39:38 and yours truly 44:11.

Thanks to John Casey and Tokyo club-mate Reza for cheering and taking pictures! Needless to say, everybody enjoyed the Yam Cha after the race!

Yes, extremely hilly, and 600m long. Previous course record was 8, but Thomas broke it by two minutes - still, he is usually running 31 or faster!

Hmm, both races are interesting in their own way, much nicer prices here, and this one is one of the last events with same-day-application. Also, Cheung Chau itself is always worth the trip.

Well done lads. Which of the two races did you both prefer? Anyway a nice start to 2011 for both of you. Great work.

What's next?
