2001-12-01

It was the first time for Mr. Katsumi Asada, who is 35 years old and has done 23 marathon races so far, to win the race with finishing at2.22.43. Since the race started Mr.Seiji Kushibe, who is 30 years olds, left far behind. Then Asada had been running with the second group and caught up with the top at around 39 km. It was at the point of 200m left that Asada rushed to the goal and finished the race without knowing his win. Ashida is determined to send to Berlin Marathon to take place at next September as a representative of Lake Kawaguchi and will challenge to break his own record which is 2.18.22. Mrs. Mai Aoki , who is 29 years olds, won the women’s race with 2.47.9. Also Mr. Ukyo Katayama, who used to be a Formula 1 driver for race car and is well-known as an alpinist, participated in Fun Run with his son and enjoyed the race.

Profile of winner: Katsumi Asada was born in Shizuoka Prefecture on 1996/3/26. 183cm height and 67kg Weight. He was a valley ball player for junior high school and high school. Then he joined the yacht club of Tukuba University. His family are wife and two daughters. Asada, who started to run Marathon 8 years ago because of his broken hurt, was considering himself as 2nd position of the race when he just passed the finish line. However, the unexpected word from race staff made him surprise so that he could not say anything for while. Although he was often said as a tortoise from his team mate of high school valley ball club since his movement was not so swift, he sparkled himself with Marathon instead. After the race he said “I thought that last year was my peak but this makes me change my mind and I will continue to run Marathon and do my best as much as I can for Berlin Marathon next September.
