28 March 2010. Four Nambanners enjoyed the pageantry and international diversity of the Jeju Ultramarathon Race in South Korea. The 50k and 100k events followed Jeju’s rugged shoreline. 3 members lined up for the 50k, while Yoshitaka attempted the full 100k. Jay captured a fantastic 1st place and Matthias an excellent 4th in the 50k. Unfortunately Michael had to retire with an injury but was able to encourage his teammates. Race officials generously provided Nambanners with 5-star hotel accommodations, free race registration, as well as sharp-looking, pink jackets.
