Hi everyone!

I’m so excited to be joining this race as it’s going to be my first stage race, and is the most challenging race I have ever attended.

Quick introduction of myself, I am 41year-old man, living in Tokyo with my wife and 2 year-old daughter.

I started running 1 year and a half ago due to the result of my medical check, which showed my body has too much fat. I chose jogging to reduce my weight.

That’s how I began running. My crazy friends also challenge me to run hard races, which is fun actually.

I have done 1 ultra marathon and a few trail races in 2018. Hope this NZ race will open up the next level my my racing life!
