Obuse mini Marathon blog
A race not of speed nor competition
But intended instead to take in the sights of Obuse
A run for the sheer fun of it, the Mini Marathon
A way for visitors to connect with our town
Enso = Performance (or, literally, 'Green Run')
Obuse welcomes 1.2 million visitors each year,
Equal to 100 times the local population
Not to the well-worn roads, the official highways
But to the embankments, the trails and back roads of our town,
Off the beaten path
See Obuse in its everyday garb
Soak up the scenery on a 21K journey of discovery.

■Lottery at Previous-Day Registration♪


This year we will hold a lottery for runners at the previous-day registration!
Thanks to the support of many companies and organizations, we have plenty of gift certificates, vouchers and more as prizes♪
Who knows what you will get♪

Also, some of the people performing along the course will come to perform at previous-day registration as well♪

They've been practicing their hardest to cheer on the runners, so come watch their performances♪

There are only 3 weeks left until the Obuse mini Marathon!
We look forward to seeing you all in Obuse!

■To all runners


This has been a cold and snowy winter
but everyone should be waking up from hibernation now.

Today was the 7th Tokyo Marathon.
This year is the 11th Obuse mini Marathon.
We are entering a new decade.

In the snowy country, we'll start running,
without waiting for the snow to melt.

We apologize for the delay, but
the 2012 charity information is now available.
