Our CHIYODA Soyukai is a well known club among joggers and this
year is the 30th anniversary of it's foundation.
Our membership is quite open for people - there are no restrictions
for age and gender and also no club fees.
Of course we always welcome foreigners as our fellow joggers!
Every Sunday, except rainy days, we meet at a small park, facing
most of the Imperial Palace at around 8:00 a.m. and enjoy jogging
together - but then with each's own different speed and pace.
The distance of one round is approximately 5km but many people
run twice, some run more.
Once a month we carry out "time trials" on the 1st Sunday
and most people challenge one's own record.
We also participate in many marathons or "ekiden" races
and have a lot of fun.
Many club members have experiences of running full Marathon races,
and at present, we have 21 "Super runners" which means
finishers of 100km races (or longer distances) within a set time
However, the most important objective of our club is to enjoy each
other's company through jogging, walking and chatting with a drink
or light meal.
