10K, Half, BBQ — the Perfect Day


Well, almost perfect — we did get rain, but not too much, fortunately. And we had tents…. The occasion was the annual club Run and BBQ, held on Sunday, Nov. 8th. About 90 club members, family and friends gathered on the bank of the Tamagawa river for a day of running, eating and drinking. 28 took part in the 10K, won by Alex Viborg in 35:49, and 32 in the half marathon, won by Harrisson Uk in 1:20:16. Top women were Rui Natsuka (45:55) and Connie Arcella-Bouverot (1:27:12). Organization of the races and BBQ was perfect thanks to Chiba-san and his large, dedicated team of volunteers. Runners’ diets went out the window as huge amounts of food and drink were consumed, and a fine time was had by all. See you there next year!
