Re: Nara Marathon on December 8

It's quite interesting to run in the city of Deers. The route is challenging as its total elevation is nearly double to SCM HK while temperature is usually between 0-10C (I saw some snows last year). Route is great as composing of yellow leaves, red leaves, snows and numerous supporters from different ages. Race arrangement & support is about the same quality as other marathons in Japan. I love the starting block arrangement as every runner is graded according to best achieved time within 18 months. I ran with the group of Japanese runners with similar pacing (like bicycle team) from start line for more than 35k. It's an amazing experience. Nara is a rural area where hotels or inns are limited during marathon period. If you want to run this race, you may consider to stay in Namba in Osaka & take Kintetsu line(45-55min) to Nara.
