TEAM JAPAN JOINS SCOTIABANK INTERNATIONAL


TEAM CHALLENGE


For the first time, the International Team Challenge will see a team from Japan – one of the great “Marathon” nations. And it is a strong one, setting itself as the team to beat against Team CANADA, and Team ENGLAND. Watch out for HONDA stars Takashi Horiguchi [PR 2:12:03] & Minora Okuda [debut] and the women from YAMADA DENKI Team -- Maki Suzawa [debut; 70:23 half PR] & Ayumi Nakayama [PR 2:28:50].


It’s a new trend for Japanese elites to compete in city- marathons outside Japan. So let’s give them an especially warm, Toronto welcome!


So what’s an IAAF Silver Label?


It’s the mark of excellence that the IAAF (the official world governing body for athletics) gives the best marathons and road races in the world each year. It’s the Michelin 4 stars of running!


RUN FAT BOY RUN... a new Steve WAY runs for Team ENGLAND!


“This fat boy slimmed down stands as a beacon of hope to Britons still aspiring to take part in the Olympic Games on the capital’s streets in 2012”. Daily Mail


Steve Way will have a little extra pride in his stride as he toes the line for Team ENGLAND at STWM2010. Just 3 years ago, he weighed 225lbs with a 38” waist. “He smoked, drank, and thought eating kebabs was good nutritional advice.” He ran the 2006 London Marathon in 3 hours 7 minutes as “a fat bloke bouncing along next to club runners,” in his own words!


Then he lost his job with a bank, owing to the recession, and he began training in earnest. By this April he was down to a svelt 145lbs and the part-time postman from Poole clocked a remarkable 2:19:38 at London – 17th overall in “the world’s greatest race”. Described as “a fairytale international call-up”, Way confesses: “If you’d told me three years ago that I’d have had an England vest in September this year then I would have laughed at you.”


Joining Steve Way on Team ENGLAND are: Dave Norman, Altrincham; Brian Wilder, Herne Hill; Nicky Archer, Vale Royal; Sarah Gee, Reading; Julie Briscoe, Wakefield.
