Tokyo is Marathon 52 for Shona

Ultra runner Shona Young has now competed in five of the six major marathons in the World, last weekend she was fortunate to be one of only 200 overseas runners to be awarded a semi-elite place in the Tokyo Marathon, the Japanese tend to encourage their own to participate.This was remarkably Shona’s 52nd marathon, in ideal conditions on a flat and fast route Shona finished in a time of 3 hours 16 minutes 49 seconds.

Having already contested the marathons in Boston, London, New York City and Chicago she only has Berlin to do to complete the full set of marathon majors.
