Registered for the 2011 Kobe Marathon

Well, I just registered for the 2011 Kobe Marathon which will be run for the first time on November 20th.  Didn’t realize it was going to be a lottery type registration, so we’ll see if they select me for the inaugural running of the marathon.  I won’t find out until the end of June as whether or not I am in, so it will be a waiting game.  Also, I’m still waiting to find out if I’m lucky enough to get into the NY Marathon – should be receiving notice soon.

More information about the Kobe Marathon may be obtained from the following web site:


About runninginspired

I’m in my mid-40s and have been running for about 19 years. I have finished 24 marathons with a personal best time of 3:04. I currently reside in San Diego, CA. I enjoy running since it keeps you honest and will give back what you put into it. Work hard, but smart, and good results will eventually follow. I like to experiment with training plans, gadgets, shoes, and nutrition to find what works for me. The primary purpose of this blog is to document my training and thoughts about running in my ongoing quest to improve my fitness and health.

    Hi from Australia
    I am running my first marathon in Kobe and saw you are also running. I have not seen a lot of information on web about this event, apart from the official website.
    Have you seen or heard any feedback about the preparations? I note your priority is New York. best of luck.



    • Hi Cam!

      I also have not heard anything from the Kobe Marathon since I’ve paid my entry fees. However, from my experience with Japanese marathons, usually within a month of the race, they will send you an e-mail with all the details. So I wouldn’t be overly concerned until the end of October.

      Hope your training is going well. A fall marathon in Japan is usually a good time of year to run — as long as it doesn’t rain.

      Best Regards,
