Takashimadaira Road Race 5/10/20km

Takashimadaira Road Race 5/10/20km

Takashimadaira 20km runners

Today I ran the 5km race in Takashimadaira in the northern suburbs of Tokyo. The race is excellently organised - timers, timing chips, police, closed roads, marshalls, drinks at the end - you couldn't ask for more.

I was happy enough with my run - 17.56 (or was I a second or three slower? I never saw my official time Edit: Looks like official time was 18.00). My stomach got me at 4km.

Namban Rengo had a good turn out - and some good results. Best was Yuri in the 20km. She finished third (I believe) after holding second place for over 15km.

In the 5km, Fabrizio came 6th in 17:46.

The other times were:
10k - Gerard: 35:15; Yoshida-san: 35:30; Juergen: 38:02; Anthony: 41:05; Jun: 41:30 and Jon Holmes and Tamami Koike: both 50.50.
20k - Brett: 1:11:17; Yuri: 1:15:40; Mika: 1:25:30 (1:25:10)

The lead pack - mainly Tokyo University runners
