Yesterday, Toyama Marathon 2016 was held and over 13,000 runners participated. The weather was gorgeous - a perfect day for a marathon.
Runners getting ready for the start of the run in Takaoka.
One of the highlights of the run - beautiful Shinminato Bridge at the half-way point. In the back is Tateyama Mountain Range.
After the bridge was a long flat country roads.
Many banners drawn by children to cheer runners.
The finish in Toyama City.
The route of the run.
The run was very well organized and I highly recommend it for marathon runners.
