The Sakai city government has hosted a Wellington resident to run in the Senshu marathon as an ambassador for Wellington since 1994. In February’s event Wellington runner Tim Sutton finished second in the race in 2hrs 44min!

The Senshu marathon runs through Sakai and the other ten districts of the south part of Osaka, which used to be called ‘Senshu’. Around 4000 runners participate to the marathon.
