Calling All Marathon Runners!

posted Nov 10, 2015, 5:54 PM by Bloomington Sister City

Izumi City has issued a call for two marathon runners who live or work in Bloomington to participate in next February's Senshu Marathon. The two runners selected for this opportunity will have the chance to spend a week in Izumi City, stay with host families, and experience Japanese language and culture firsthand. These two individuals will be representatives of the city of Bloomington and will have travel and lodging expenses paid by the BSCO and IIEA. 

No Japanese language skills required!

Interested? Contact us via e-mail at   Runners will be selected by mid-November, so get in touch soon if you're interested in running a marathon in Japan!
