Tokyo Marathon

21/03/2019

Two Dumfries Running Club members Fiona Jardine and her daughter Kerry journeyed to Japan to take part in the Tokyo Marathon on March 3rd. 

Lining up at the start at The Metropolitan Government Building, it was like a Scottish day with rain and a temperature of 7c. Fiona gave her rain poncho to an Australian lady as she didn’t want to run in hers, much to the relief and delight of the young woman.

Tokyo is gearing up for the Olympic Games next summer and the course was mainly out and back on wide city roads. The Japanese spectators numbering well over a million were the most enthusiastic spectators Fiona and Kerry had ever experienced in the various big city events they had taken part in. There was entertainment, mainly drumming ,along the way which kept the runners motivated.

They passed various places of interest along the 26.2 miles including the Imperial Palace Gardens, Tokyo Tower, the Asakusa Gate a beautiful old buddhist temple and the Tokyo Sky Tree hotel

Kerry got another PB with very little training in 4 hours 48 minutes, taking 17 minutes off her Berlin time in September thanks to a more structured training regime. Fiona was very pleased to finish in a time of  4 hours 18 minutes. They found the whole experience of Tokyo and the Marathon a wonderful sporting and cultural experience.
