Adachi Friendly Marathon 2016

Yesterday, I participated in Adachi Friendly Marathon 2016.

This was actually a half-marathon and was the seventh of the race. Almost 8,000 runners were there.  Of them, about 6,000 ran the half-marathon that started at 11:00 am.  The temperature went up 19 degrees Celsius!  It was so warm - very unusual for December in Tokyo.

The finish line at 3 hours after the start of the race - almost time to pack-up.
