WHEN: Start on 1 April 2012 and finished on 6th July 2012.
WHAT: 4259kms, Averaged 52kms a day for 83 days of running plus a few days rest and volunteering days. Total days on road was 97.
I headed along the beautiful coast of Okinawa, went though small towns, enjoy Japanese osens (baths), climbed up Mt Fuji ( to half way very windy day) , run through the hussle and bussle of Osaka and Tokyo, Volunteered along the coast that was struck by the Tsunami of 2011, and run past the beautiful flowers and hills in Hokkai do as I made my way up this amazingly unique country.
I ran to raise donations and awareness for the areas that were hit by the March 2011 tsunami. The $19,500 NZD raised went towards helping the rebuilding of schools and communities in the Tohoku area. I hoped to show you how Japan can be so much fun even if you don’t underst and the language. The beautiful Japanese people are so friendly that you won’t want to leave.
