Luck of the Draw

Apparently 156,012 people registered for the 2008 Tokyo Marathon, a sharp increase from the 95,044 last year.

I wonder just what criteria were used for the lottery… previous times? Time of registration? Randomized numbers? Being a foreigner already in Japan? Several members of Namban Rengo, a large running group in Tokyo, have been selected as well.

February 17th, 2008. Four months and counting…
