Turtle Half Marathon

New PB (official time to be confirmed but between 1h48 and 1h49 from my measurement) at the Turtle half marathon today on the Arakawa river in Adachi-ku to the east of Tokyo.

Thanks go to Juergen for the place. He writes the website Running in Tokyo and got a few places for international runners as a result:


It was very crowded so difficult to run at the pace I wanted but this did help me not o go too fast at the start.

The route was lovely, out along the river and back and there were many blind runners and other disabled competitors which made for a great atmosphere.

I had a great stretch at the end curtesy of the massage tent.
