Update Osaka Marathon

Something like this.



It was announced that there would be an official press conference on Monday January 24th at 4:00pm. There they will detail the marathon course which has been decided, as from a few days ago, and discuss the participation (hopefully have some maps I can upload here and details on how they are going to select the runners).

I'll let you know as I hear things. They had a virtual map on the TV tonight which ran through the full course. I'll try to get hold of that. But no complaints it looks fast and covers just about all the things you'd want to see while you're here!

  1. Looking forward to seeing the route as I am hoping to run this marathon, probably in 2012. Also want to run Kobe and Kyoto. So many marathons, so little time

    All the things I want to see in Osaka...Scott Brown's house and Scott Brown's favorite bar and...that's all I can think of.

  4. No worries Bob, but my favorite bar at the moment in Osaka is an Irish pub, not very Japanese I'm afraid ;)

  5. Looks like a good course but having to score a 'GOAL' after 26.2 miles seems like asking a bit too much, afterall David Beckam has trouble scoring from 400M :]

  6. Looks like they cut some corners.

    Where's the hidden treasure?

  7. I want to see me catching that Martian girl down the bottom with the flowing hair.

  8. So many Marathons seem to think you want to sight-see when you race. I was only interested in seeing a big sign which said "finish" on it and next to it a time clock starting with the number 2 !!
