Kamogawa Elementary School runs their races along the beach front near my place, the perfect place if you ask me and no doubt the envy of other local schools. When I went out on the balcony to check on all the raucous going on I saw everything was in full swing and had to go and see it first hand. I grabbed my camera and was out the door in a flash.
Little ones receiving their last instructions.
Off to a flier!
4th graders (I think) starting out.
6th graders just getting into their stride.
Supporters lining the finishing straight.
Finishers in the shade lining up for their official placings.
Nearly there, ganbatte!
Congratulations to all the participants. They all gave it everything, right to the finish. Fantastic team spirit demonstrated by one and all! otsukarisama
