Tokyo Marathon 2012 - the craziest event ever!!!

I could not believe my eyes when I saw so many people dressed up for the event. There was even a bare-foot Jesus Christ running with a full size wooden cross on his shoulders!!!

Here he is! Can you see the cross?

Tokyo Marathon 2012 - the top runners

It's almost unbelievable they can finish a full marathon in a little bit more than 2 hours. It means running at about 20km/h for all the time!!!

By the way, the winner was Michael Kipyego, from Kenia (the last one with the green outfit in the two pictures below), with a total time of 2:07:37. Congratulations, Michael!

The guy in the center of the picture, with the number 1, is Haile Gebrselassie. At the end he was fourth in 2:08.17.
