Nagano Marathon

Australian runner Kate Smyth ran the Nagano Marathon today looking for a time of 2.32 to qualify for the Beijing Games, so she'll be pleased with her well-earned 2nd place and her time of 2:28:51.

Mens winner Nephat Kinyaniui of Kenya ran 2:14:17, well down on his PB 2:08:09 he ran in Beijing last year.

Many Namban Rengo (www.namban.org) runners would have been cheering Eric Wainaina. The Tokyo-based dual Olympic medalist finished 13th in 2:18:18.
