Another full marathon starts in Hokkaido. With a 6 hour time limit, pretty much anyone could finish it. The Ohotsuku - Abashiri Marathon will be held on September 27 (Sun), 2015. Get some new shoes, get some yak-trax, renew your gym membership and let's get that base training started! ('Cause I'm all about that base!) This falls on the weekend before the Betsukai Pilot Marathon, which is convenient for me because there are always a lot of events on the first weekend in October (Ikeda Wine Festival anyone?).
Limited information is included in the calendar entries. For more information, leave a comment. I try to post the deadlines for the races. The place where the race is held is also included. You can see where it is by clicking on the map link.
