Yokohama Marathon 2019

Recommended Posts

A race which I have prepared for months but thinking that there will not be anyone running this race, hence did not create a topic previously to discuss. 

Below link is my race review on the magnificent race in case anyone is interested to take part in Yokohama Marathon 2020. Enjoy...

Another Japan run... bro you sure is rich......

Noticed you tend not to write a lot on your race experience and what happened during the race....maybe your were juggling to focus on getting your PB...but  I feel that that is the the most important thing on a race review and should not focus just on pre-run and post run...

Anyway its your blog........

understand... frankly speaking, i don't remember much on what i saw along the route... the entire time i was mostly looking at my pace and the location of the next water point so that I can timely get my energy gel in... 

Will try to improve on that... thanks bro....

Always enjoy your Japan Race review on your blog. After running Tokyo this year, I understand why you have this fondness of Japan Race.

Thinking of running Kyoto or Osaka in 2020/2021. 

Btw is it entry for Yokohama Marathon by ballot too?

I never seen so many people lined up and cheering a running event, unbroken human chain along the roads from Shinjuku to Tokyo Station. It was 4-5c and raining,  miserable for those running but even worse for those just standing and cheering the runners. Japanese race is really something to experience.

 

Oh ok, that is nice first come fist serve instead the balloting system.

yea man.... there is no broken chain usually... unless going up expressways where organisers usually dun allow spectators.... other than that, whenever one feels down, he will always be cheered upon by them.... especially whenever I walk to rest, someone in the spectators will always shout out "gambatek" or give me a smile....
